I originally thought this was bad directing. I noticed it a few months ago when the male lead of a featured story wasn’t animating when he was speaking or walking. His mouth stayed closed through the speech bubbles, and then he would glide standing from spot to spot.
I noticed it a few more times with other male characters in both featured and community stories, and I still thought it might be a directing error. Then today I finally closed out of a story with the problem, went back in, and the male character in question resumed animating. It seems similar to the issue with clothes disappearing or characters going off-screen. You can correct it by closing the story or app… but ideally there wouldn’t be anything to correct at all.
Has anyone else had this error, or am I experiencing a series of extremely weird coincidences?
