I think it's time to present new and revamped revision of another application in TE toolchain - WadTool!
WadTool was made as a replacement for outdated, inconvenient and unstable applications like WadMerger and TRViewer. It should greatly simplify your workflow, for now at least in part of animation importing and editing. Eventually, it will hopefully include functionality of such tools as Strpix and allow you to import meshes and whole models with already applied attributes, such as shiny, blending modes, and so on.
Forthcoming version 1.2.8 was completely reworked, lots of bugs were fixed, and generally WadTool is now stable and useable. Here is the video announcement with all important features covered!

- Import animations in FBX and COLLADA formats.
