What's wrong with the animation feature?

My app is not live yet and I like to use a number of animations but I’ve noticed that when testing in the editor, they don’t perform well at all. It distorts the texts, Flips the text, Turns the text upside down (depending on the animation used). I see a post from last year in September where other members were experiencing the same thing, but there was no response as to what the issue was. @emmanuel is this only an issue in development mode?
