I'm trying to learn Blender in order to create character models for a game I really like. I have access to the game's models as .FBX files and their textures as standard sprite sheets. However, each time I import the model into blender I can't seem to interact with any of the model's faces or vertices. I can interact with the model's bones (or skeleton or whatever its called) but I can't interact with the model itself. I'm still in the process of learning how to use blender to its fullest so pardon if its a silly question.
When I was going into edit mode, I had the bones/armature selected as well as the mesh. I wasn't aware that I couldn't edit the mesh if I had all of it connected. The moment I just selected the mesh and switched over to Edit Mode, I could see the faces just fine.
