cut out animation question

I’m just learning the Animate program and I’m stumped on how to animate cut out characters. I’ve rigged my character, hit the transform and animate button, move my character to pose and head down to the timeline and click into a frame and add a keyframe. But as soon as I leave the first frame(where the character is located) in my timeline the character disappears, so I can’t record it to another frame. Am I missing a step or setting somewhere? Any help is appreciated.

you need to extend the exposure on the frames. Do this be selecting the frame of each drawing you want to expose to and press F5 or right click and choose extend exposure.

Thanks much!
