Amature problem

Hello I am using Blender 2.41 and I can’t seem to use the envelop correctly,

I pressed alt-s to link the envelop to the object, but it doesn’t bend correctly, please help

here is an image of what happens

These questions should be asked in the animation forum:

This forum is for programs and applications other than blender.

You need to select the Mesh with RMB and goto F9 buttons, Modifiers tab and add an “Armature” Modifier. Type in the Object Name (OB:Armature in the Link and Materials tab) of the Armature in the Modifier panel and you’re set to go.


Oops sorry about posting at this section

unfortunately, I still cannot get it to work, i followed all the instructions , at least I thought I did, but I still have the same problem, as the picture above, 

I am using blender 2.41

These are the steps I took:

          I create a cylinder
          I create skeleton at the bottom
          I exude to create the second part. 
         in object mode, i right click on the cylinder
         I go to modifier tab and add Modifier 
          I add armature 
          in the modifier name , 
          i write A and press tab, Armature comes out
         I now right click on the skeleton in pose mode and press 

         Now I try to rotate the cylinder,

                  I result in a picture above, 

        I''m sorry, but i'm really confused, did I do something wrong?????
