Newbie that can't get lesson 5 to work

I'm doing exactly (at least I think I am) what is being shown on lesson 5 (see attached link).  But I can't get it to work.  My object(s) won't move at all.  Did he do something prior to what is being shown?

Thx

Post file (in v16.2) and I'm happy to take a look . . . can't think of anything obviously wrong with lesson 5.

Hi,

Could you possibly save as TC v16 file and post a copy here, or, email it to me?

Hi Crispy, there's nothing wrong with lesson 5. The sample you posted has a problem with the actors start & finish positions giving a straight path for the "fore-arm" bit and no elbow movement (Sample 1.GIF).

I think you've not reset their positions before saving the file. You need to make a habit of resetting to frame zero - you'll need to do it immediately after completing an animation, and before every edit or save. (Reset to frame zero.GIF)

Here's your file back - I also copied column zero to column 21 so that the GIF will loop.
