    I appreciate the succinct explanation. I know this is an old video (the old youtube layout blew my mind) but the info seems applicable, and I didn't need to watch a 10 part video series.

    before you chose the move tool, if u wanted it to bend to the bottom instead of the way it did, how would u do it?

    @Brocklee7 Then you are on your way to getting stoned.

    I'm having a bit of a problem. My middle joint doesn't want to bind to the skin, so I don't get the effect shown in the video. Can anyone help me?

    @Tobestar10 did you make sure to select the parent joint (the one that controls all the others) first, and then hold down shift and select the mesh (arm, in this case) before telling it to bind the skin? they have to both be selected, and the joint has to be selected first, and the mesh second, or it won't work right.

    @InteJohanPalm in your outliner (can be found under "window") there should be "joint" with a number after it somewhere in the list. if you click the + next to it, it will drop down and show the hierarchy of your skeleton. if, say, joint6 is indented below joint7, then joint7 controls joint6. you can select joints and drag them (middle mouse button) around until the hierarchy is how you want it, and the parent joint is the one at the very top.

    @RTard48JRod they are completely different… the way you interact with the program, and where the controls and options are and everything. blender isn't bad… i won't knock it, since i have friends who use it occasionally and say it has good performance, but i gave up on it, due it being quite user unfriendly. Maya is a lot easier to use…

    @monsterdragon13 go to display – animation – joint size and increase the number in the little box that comes up.

    @anthonytwocrown when you click on it, there should be a panel on the right-hand side that lists the translation, rotation, scale, and visibility. if you don't see that panel, click on each of the 3 icons directly below your minimize, restore, and close buttons in the upper right-hand corner, until you find it. whatever isn't working is probably a different color. select those things (not where the number is, but where the name is) and then right click and click on "unlock selected"

    @Suprem3Gamer make sure you're in the animation tab (can be found in the drop-down in the upper left-hand corner) and then go to skeleton – joint tool. then, go to a view other than perspective (top, side, or front) and click where you want your parent joint. every time you click somewhere, it'll add a joint. when you're done, hit enter. then you can go back to perspective view and reposition the joints if necessary.

    @DragonToko i'm thinking you need to paint the weights… this tells maya which joint controls which vertices.. you can find the weight painting tool under skin – edit smooth skin – paint skin weights tool. don't just click on the name of the tool, though, click on the box beside the name. then a panel will come up with options, and you click the joint you want, and then paint where you want that joint to control.

    @aftereffects00 the "mesh" is whatever object you have modeled that you're wanting to rig. i'm thinking the reason all you see is a line where your bones are is because your joint size is too small. you can make it larger by going to display – animation – joint size. if that's not it, than i don't know… i'm not all that familiar with maya 2011 yet, as i only have access to it at school and i use maya 2009 at home.

    how do you get the error message that says something along the lines of no keyable attributes or animation layers or base animation layer not selected?

    @screwubeachgoddamnu The guy is sharing his knoledge for free man…If your too lazy to pause the video,go back to the part you mised and watch again…then your probably to lazy for almos everything maya and ererything 3D or CG. Or maybe your just a total noob,for wich you should't blame/insult the guy.
