Confusion about transitions between animations categorized in different Sub-states


I’ve been laboring over trying to get an animation to transition from within one sub-state to an animation within another sub-state. While transitioning to (up) animation level from that state & creating a pathway between the two substates at a higher level, Ive been able to do this, BUT the animation ALWAYS chooses this path. I have it set up to be a conditional between 3 different anim.integer determined options, and yet it picks this one regardless of the integer. Can somebody tell me what I’m doing wrong here?

wow…20 seconds after typing this I finally figured it out. Transition between substates has to have the condition in place, and within the substate transitioned to, I also need to apply the conditional at the transition I add FROM the entry point to the desired animation.
