hi i have done what you have said and when i try to move the joints they dont move as a solid and moves like rubber

why when i hit the paint skin weights tool, chose the join from which i want to minimize the influence over other geometry, and then click on the object, the tool does not do anything. it does not darken the area. how do i fix that?

where do i go to see the full 20 :D

Ummm...The video is a total of 11 seconds long....
