Hello David Ribb,
The logic of the Carousel is that the Items are shown in the beginning only if their number is equal or larger than the number specified for their appearance in the CarouselPanel. If the sum of the Items is smaller, then the animation at the beginning does not show.
A possible solution is to add event raised on the Carousel Loading and you may use either the method of the Carousel Panel - MoveBy(1), or PageDown(). Below is shown the code snipped with the two possible solutions:
void myCarousel_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
The parameter in the method MoveBy() depends on the design of your Carousel.
