Problem with GUI animation transitioning.

I have 2 animations - slide in/fade out. first transition from default state with the condition “bool open = true” brings me to the next state with the slide in animation. A transition from this state to another has a condition “open = false”. in this state i have the fade out animaton. My problem is: when the 2nd transition happens, my panel starts both sliding out of the screen and fading out at the same time. How would i make the panel stay fixed as it’s fading?

After 3 hours of experimenting i figured out that i simply had to uncheck the box that says “Write Defaults” in my Close animation state, and as highpockets mentioned - set the transition time to 0.
