Slow/jerky animations inside manipulate

I am using Mathematica v.

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.
