Hello, I am using Mathematica v. 220.127.116.11. I have an Animate command (I'm using GraphicsRow to show two side-by-side synchronized animations) inside of Manipulate. The resulting animations play very fast and are jerky. I can adjust the play speed using AnimationRate, but it must be slowed down by a ridiculous amount in order to look smooth. I've tried adjusting the RefreshRate, as well as making time a slider variable and animating from within the Manipulate control panel, both with little success. How can I create smooth animations, appropriate for class demonstrations? Many thanks for any help.
