Animate V24 update: brushes working very poorly (EDIT: solved)

EDIT: I downloaded V23 again (V23.0), to compare, and find the same thing is happening.

I can't seem to get a stable stroke even with V23.  Now I'm confused... I know it wasn't like this before. Maybe this post will be useful nontheless.

Though, I guess it might help solve the... non-problem, so to speak 🙂
