I am trying to create a simple animation by changing mate values at different points in the time line. I am only using two mates; this is a short animation. When I change the mate the default interpolation is linear which is what I want. But, when I play the animation it treats each mate interpolation as a snap. I've tried to change to the other interpolations to see if I get different results. So far I have not found a solution. What is strange is I can select different points in the time line and the model will show the mate transitioning tot he desired value. However, when I play or record the animation it appears to snap.
Thanks for any help you can give.
