# Unity - Blend tree weird transition

I have duplicated the blend tree from the ThirdPersonCharacter (Ethan) which comes with the Standard Assets package.

In the duplicate I went into the blend tree and swapped out the walk animation "HumanoidWalk" with my own animation named "walk", but now I get a weird transition from the animation "walk" to "HumanoidRun".

Both animations, my walk animation and the original "HumanoidWalk" are root animated and look similar they have around 1.5 velocity both and same frame length.

Animation Settings:

I created the animation in blender, you will see in my video below that the animation itself runs smooth and as it should, but the transition to HumanoidRun is very weird for unknown reasons. I am using a custom metarig armature which comes with the blender add-on "rigify", I deleted some bones on the finger, but the avatar has a check and is ok (no warnings either).

Rig Settings

Player settings

I basically "copied" all the components from Ethan (ThirdPersonController) and only changed the Animator Controller and the Capsule Collider settings to match the model.

I made some short videos where you clearly see the problem, it happens if the parameter Forward is at about 0.6 - 0.8.

What am I doing wrong?

I just baked the walk animation in blender and exported it to unity again, but this made no difference.

I tried to export it from blender as FBX, it made no difference. However, I noticed that the import is happening much faster and applying in unity importer is very fast now.
