Animation has never been Visualize's strong suit. There are enough problems in the 2017 release. What a shame that it hasn't gotten enough quality control for the 2018 release either...
Devs: less time tweaking the UI design and more time improving animation for next release, please!!
I would love to have the intuitive animation of composer brought into visualize. That would be perfect, or even better would be the ability to translate the keys from composer into visualize.
There was an issue with some of the animation settings in Visualize 2018 SP0. Most (if not all) of these were fixed with our 2018 SP1 release, available in early December.
Sorry for this frustration.
