Default trying to move/rotate poly hand/joints/bones

I am having trouble moving/rotating the hand...

Here the hand is in position, i need to rotate it 90 degrees so its facing up....

are those vertices weighted to any bones? When you use the Edit Membership tool and remove vertices from being affected by a bone, you are actually removing their weighting from ALL bones, so when you move the skeleton, they don't move. You would need to Edit Membership and add those vertices to a bone that you want to use to affect those points.

Thanks, that worked beautifully. There were verticees not assigned to anything, so I just assigned them to a joint and everything moved together.

Incidentally, grouping the joints/bones with the skin and then rotating did not give good results so I left them ungrouped.

Thanks again,
Cathleen
