We really appreciate everyone taking the time to share feedback and bugs you’ve been experiencing with the Animation Update. We’re sorry that this update did not go as well as we had hoped.
To give some more background, the animation changes were made as part of a tech update that would help our team to more efficiently create new animations with a wider range of emotions and movement. Additionally, we wanted to allow for characters to emote more with their faces through each animation.
We do, however, recognize that this change in its current form removed a lot of the subtlety that many in our community have grown accustomed to using and seeing. We also understand that this change may have inadvertently shifted the emotion and/or feel of some scenes that authors have very intentionally coded a certain way.
While a tech update will likely need to occur in the future, we will be rolling this update back asap. Please continue to share your positive and/or constructive feedback about the changes in this update. As we move forward with necessary tech changes we want to be sure we can incorporate as much of your feedback as possible.
