pivot point moves forward, but geometry stays behind

Hello there,

I have some arrows that moves along a curve with path animation and flow path object. but when the object moves at the beginning of the animation only the pivot point moves, and after a few frames the arrow jumps to its correct position, and then the same process, first the pivot then after some frames the object jumps again. I will add a video for reference.

Thanks in advance.

So far the only work around that I'm doing, is to start the animation out of the camera, because seems to be at the start when the issue happens.

But anyone has a better solution?.

hey, i've experienced a similar problem , but in reverse... move geometry, yet pivot remains the same. unselecting, reselecting the object corrects the pivot location..

what i discovered, for me.. this is related to graphics card. if you are using a geforce or similar, change multi-display/mixed-GPU acceleration to single performance mode.

this fixed the problem for me.
