I think we would need to know a bit more to answer your question. Are you animating characters or objects?

the image shows a plane with one bone, it would be easier to just go into object mode and move the object then insert a key frame.

I would love to help, but I need to know what you are trying to do.

Weight painting is a very complex process, it takes alot of time and is mainly for character animation to make things look real.

I started a forum just for weight paint located in the "Documentation and Education" forum. I spent coumtless hours experimenting with weight paint you may get some answers in my posts.

1.) Make sure [x] Deform is checked in the Bone tab
2.) The Mesh's Vertex Group needs to have the same name as the Bone (Object data tab)
3.) Mesh needs to have an Armature modifier with Object set to your Armature (Modifiers tab), Bind to: Vertex Groups has to be ticked
