i need help doing cut outs and bone rig's

im using the trial version, and nothing i do works for these two methods. i am using the f1 user guide but it just doesnt help, i am a beginner and i know that has alot to do with it, but are there any tutorials out there or something thats better?

This site has very good tutorials on many subjects including cut outs.


As for bone rigs, there is a video for sale on the web site, otherwise the user guide is still the best source of information.
