I thought I had this down...But now I'm getting characters that look like their from the movie 'The Thing' or a Salvador Dali Painting, all stretched and deformed. Anyone know what's wrong with my transforms?
struct sBone
{
	sBone()
	{
		D3DXMATRIX identity;
		D3DXMatrixIdentity(&identity);
		m_frameTransform = m_toRoot = m_skinWeightOffset = m_Anim = m_finalTransform = identity;
	}
	void ToRoot(D3DXMATRIX parent)
	{
		m_toRoot = parent * m_frameTransform;
		for_each(m_vChildBones.begin(), m_vChildBones.end(), [&](std::tr1::shared_ptr<sBone> bone){ bone->ToRoot(m_toRoot);});
	}
	void FinalTransform(D3DXMATRIX parent)
	{
		m_finalTransform = m_skinWeightOffset * m_Anim * m_toRoot;
		for_each(m_vChildBones.begin(), m_vChildBones.end(), [&](std::tr1::shared_ptr<sBone> bone){ bone->FinalTransform(m_finalTransform);});
	}
	std::string m_name;
	D3DXMATRIX  m_frameTransform;
	D3DXMATRIX  m_toRoot;
	D3DXMATRIX  m_skinWeightOffset;
	D3DXMATRIX  m_Anim;
	D3DXMATRIX  m_finalTransform;
        std::vector<std::tr1::shared_ptr<sBone>> m_vChildBones;
};

m_frameTransform = Frame::FrameTransformMatrix m_skinWeightOffset = SkinWeights::Offset m_Anim = AnimationSet::Animation matrix [Edited by - Jacob Jingle on March 11, 2010 3:15:01 PM]

I'm not sure how you're calculating the animation matrix, but normally:

Each frame-

m_frameTransform = animTransform( time t );

where animTransform = lerp/slerp_local_anim(time t);

Then:
m_toRoot = m_frameTransform * parentToRoot; //NOTE THE ORDER!

Then:
final = skinOffset * m_toRoot;

The skinOffset moves the vertices from rest pose to bone space. The final transform moves the vertices from bone space to animation world space.

In words, finalTransform = (move from world rest pose to bone space) * (move from bone space to animated world).

If, for whatever reason, you want to preserve the FrameTransformMatrix, then:

m_toRoot = animTransform * parentToRoot;
