When creating widgets that contain child widgets with animations, the performance appears when adding animations via child widgets. If the same amount of animations are created in a widget, the performance appears to be better than if they are added to another widget via the user created section.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Download the attached project
  2. Open the project
  3. Play in Editor
  4. Press the '~' key to pull up the console
  5. Use the command "Stat UnitGraph"
  6. Press the '1' and '2' keys to create the widgets

Result: The graph shows a spike in frames, game, and GPU
Expected: The performance would stay relatively flat with the current setup
