paint skin weights...or use the component editor...
i forget the exact location of this operation (might be in the shelf by default) but if you go to the maya tutorials (that come with maya) then you can see the tutorial on skinning
there is no one-click-does-it-all-solution due to the unpredictable nature of skinning
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
