Animate simplified representation

Hi,

 

I have used simplified representations to "break" up a robotic arm in three sections that I assemble and then use mechanisms to animate the movement with server motors. If I then go to Applications -> Animation I get a warning that "Cannot enter Design Animation application with Graphics rep or Symbolic Rep. Does this mean that I can only use the limited animation functionality within the Mechanism application?

 

Also I try to change the background to white, but when I try to capture an animation I get the first fram with white background and the following have a white to blue transition background, similar to what the default background was 15 years ago.
