I've been recently working with animations and I gotta say, either I'm not getting keyframing conceptually or my SW is glitchy.
When I made my simple animation and played it as an .avi file, I noticed some glitches, like some parts in the assembly randomly appearing/disappearing for a split second, then does what I made it to do. It makes the animation look choppy. Is it that my timing with the keyframe is off? I did 3 attempts and the first attempt was the best, so the file that you will open is the 3rd attempt which is not as good.
Also, when I exit motion study to go back to the model, why in the world does SW remove some mates I already set, some fully constrained no less??? Even simply scrolling through multiple motion studies messes up the way the model is mated. It's entirely frustrating.
Please note these parts are supposed to be simple and not detailed.
