Animation transition smoothness differs from Plotly Express to Plotly Graphical Objects


I am animating a scatterplot using Plotly for Python and I noticed a big difference in the smoothness of the transition using Plotly Express vs Plotly Graphical Objects. Plotly Express is quite a bit smoother, which is what I need for animating sporting data. However, I’m not able to utilize multiple layers with Express so I jumped to GO, but the transitions are not nearly as smooth. Is there an easy way to rectify this? I’ve already tried using:

fig.update_layout(transition = {'duration': 0, 'easing':'linear', 'ordering':'traces first'})

But it does not seem to help at all. Any ideas on how to achieve the same level of smoothness that is present in Plotly Express with GO? Thanks!
