moving an actor model

I can't seem to move actors that get added to the world, they always move a tiny bit and get reset back to their original positions (unlike other models such as spheres). I'm thinking the animation resets the pose, but am new to Gazebo so am a bit unsure as to where to start looking. Does anyone have any idea why this would be?

The sdf that I insert into the world is pretty simple:

<sdf version ='1.5'>
    <actor name='actor0'>

An image for context:

Thanks for your help!

The actor class does reset the pose. If you just want to have a DAE file that you can move around, you can use:

<model name="human">
  <link name="link">
    <visual name="visual">

I winged the above, so there might be some typos. It also is only a visual with no collision.
