How to not always show first frame of animation

I have an animation controlled by animator and it always shows the first frame of the animation even when it is not playing. Is there any way to avoid this? I was thinking I could just make the object inactive, but it seems a bit messy and I think there would be an easier way.

See screen below. Notice that it says “No Spin” and it still shows the first frame of the spin animation, even though it isnt animating.


Solved this question myself. The solution is to turn disable the renderer, and to only enable it before the animation is going to play.
