Bip01_R_Finger01 31
Bip01_R_Finger02 32
Bip01_R_Finger12 33

heres how the update function gets the bone matrix

// set FinalMatrices to that frame's offset matrix
FinalMatrices[i] = *pMeshContainer->pSkinInfo->GetBoneOffsetMatrix(i);

// multiply that by the animated frame matrix
FinalMatrices[i] *= *pMeshContainer->ppFrameMatrices[i];

now do i need to convert the FinalMatrix array to D3DXVECTORS?
