  One thing that is about to drive me crazy is the animate walk cycle. Why does it jump at each cycle? Sometimes it drops back at the next cycle, sometimes it skips forward.WHY? I think what I am going to do is create my own walk cycle. I have studied that for years in cartoon animation and have done it. I have a book on cartoon animation with a cycle to follow, and as they would do move the back ground with each step forward, or the right way of the figure moving and the background stable. Why does the Animate walk cycle jump or lag? Why doesn’t it flow as they show in the tutorial?

The most common cause is that the character is scaled.  Double click on the character and check and see if the scale is 100%

You can workaround this by adding a null to the scene and parenting the character to the null.  Then scale the null.
