Animation Events, not updating animation until next frame.

    BoxA has two animation states [Idle] and [MoveRight]
    Non of them loop and [Idle] has a trigger to start [MoveRight] "Very Basic"
    If you deactivate the GameObject, Unity leaves the object in the position where the [MoveRight] animation stopped and sits there practical in "no state".
    When you activate the GameObject again, It pops back to it's default "Enter" state [Idle] Which is the expected behaviour

    If i call the activation of the GameObject with an "Animation Event" option 2 happens


    As you can see, the code triggers on the correct frame but the animation is first updated on the next one.

    3th Test
    If i say the code should delay the action by one frame, but it's still initially triggered by an AnimationEvent
    we are back to normal:

    This however is not desirable and an UGLY HACK solution. I assume it has something to do with the order of the animation loop. Something Something.

    I have tried to force update the animation but no luck. Any Help?
