How to animate a configuration change?

I want to do a simple animation in Visualize 2017 SP1 Professional: I have a flange assembly with 2 configurations. One has plain holes and the other has threaded holes. In my animation, I zoom in to get a closeup of the threaded holes, then I change to the other configuration (plain holes). My goal is to show a 1 second transition (threads to no threads).

I set up a key frame to show the Thread configuration, then copied it to the start of the transition. I move to the end of the transition and switched to SolidWorks and chose the plain configuration. I was prompted to update the model & I did.

But now, when I play the animation, the model shows as plain holes throughout.

I thought placing a key frame would capture the state of the SW model at that point in time?

Or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks.
