Hi all! I am picking up animate after 15 years of not using it...sooo a lot to get used to again! I am having an issue with using the bone tool. I have my character talking for a moment, then I wanted the arm to move up, but the arm slowly moves before it hits the key frames and then the intended motion takes place, which is not what I want. I wanted the arm static until I wanted it to move. How can I stop the arm from slowly moving up before I want it to?

If Nick's answer eluded you: don't bother with Animate's built-in character rigging tools. They are broken and buggy, and somehow the developers manage to make things worse with each new release.

 

Instead, download Nick's Flanimate character tools, and enjoy a peaceful character rigging and animation process in Animate CC (Although you will still have to live with its rather dismal performance compared to other animation software on the market - but it is what it is).
