A question about manipulation tool and pivot centers in SOLIDWORKS visualize

I'm having trouble animating my models because I can't rotate my parts properly in sw visualize. Animating them is very different compared to when I use sw's motion study because I think there no mate feature in visualize so when I try to rotate say a part, it doesn't align with the other parts from the assembly. I heard there's a snap feature in visualize for adjusting pivot center and rotation axes. Maybe I'm missing something. Any tips? using sw 2017
