Are you suggesting to extract model file from game data and somehow add it into my addon as a separate model? I have no idea how to do that, honestly. Never even saw addon with custom 3D model, I thought that addons can only use built-in models.

Thanks for suggestion, I tried it and it doesn't seem to work. Here's my code:
local ag = frame:CreateAnimationGroup();
local a = ag:CreateAnimation("Rotation");
Actually there's remark at https://wow.gamepedia.com/API_Animat...reateAnimation "It appears that all animations involving moving a PlayerModel frame will fail silently. Alpha animations are the only animation type which will have any effect on these frames.".

I also tried to create parent frame for model frame and rotate it. It rotated, but model frame inside did not rotate.
