Hi, first post. Sorry if this is in the wrong place or a silly question. I'm just getting started with Houdini, and I'm really liking it!

Here's my question: I'm trying to animate a character. I want him to run for awhile, slow down, stop, etc. My idea was to use the animation layers and create a looping running cycle, and animate it's influence down to zero when he's not moving. Scrubbing the value from 1 to 0 manually creates the blend I'm looking for, but when I keyframe the transition nothing happens. I can see the value change in the animation mixer window but the run cycle remains visible.

What am I missing?

I have the exact same problem, I have made test on both a mac 17.5.391 and windows 17.5.445 and its the same behavior in both cases.
This is breaks the whole idea of animation layers :-/

I have attached a test hip file
