ArcGIS Pro Animation export is empty?

I'm trying to make a simple animation of a boundary progression over time in ArcGIS Pro. The data are a set of individual layers for a national boundary, each layer is a different time step. In the animation menu I'm setting keyframes, one for each time interval, turning each layer on in secession. In the Timeline window I see the correct keyframe thumbnails, and if I advance the frames manually from the Playback menu they change as expected. But, if I hit play on the Playback menu the screen goes blank and I just see the time slide moving but no map. If I export as a Draft or GIF I get export files with only the basemap showing, my layers are missing.

What is going on with my animation?

I have the exact same problem, I have a layer (3D buildings) which is also not displayed in the exported movie, no matter what format I export. Has anyone got a solution for this?

update: although I can't tell you what I did differently, my exports now have the map layers showing in them. However, the Playback function still shows no frames or running animation which  makes iterating changes extremely difficult. All of the help for this tool is focused on camera animation as opposed to tweening between static layers.

Hm ok, and which export settings have you used when it worked? (Resolution, Frames etc.)
