gingerman animation

Hi all,

I’m new to 3d modelling as well as to blender world… I’m trying to achieve steps told on animating the gingerman tutorial (here: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:Manual/Your_First_Animation/2.Animating_the_Gingerbread_Man)
I’ve done everything fine but failed at Skinning section of this tutorial…

It tells creating a parent to armature and I did as told… But when I try to select the vertex groups individually it doesn’t select (yellow colored) vertex points… When I press A to select/deselect it selects every vertex points of the body…
I don’t understand what I did wrong…

thanks and kind regards

Hi again,

I found my problem… I was trying to select group vertices by pressing A instead of using Select / Deselect buttons in the Vertex Groups section of the Links and Materials panel…

and sorry about posting this thread in the News and Discussions forum, I think here is not the right one…

Kind regards
