Hello! This is a follow-up to an e-mail response I received from Will. He asked me to post this as a question on the forum, with the hopes that the developers will be able to help.
So I was just wondering about the release date for blend trees, I was told that there is a closed beta, how could I go about getting my team access to the blend trees?
Thanks in advance!
I am also interested in the Closed Beta for the new anim component + blend trees.

@Elliott, we’ve deployed the Blend Trees API although it is still not considered public API:
Do you consider it ready to be test driven by

Can you DM or post your PlayCanvas username and I will add you when I next at my laptop.

Hey, the blend tree support in the engine is in a workable state. The only major feature missing for blend trees is the ability to synchronise blended animations together at load time. Though this can be handled in a preprocess step before importing animations into a PlayCanvas project.
We’ll be releasing some engine examples for blend trees very soon, but blend trees support in the editor will take a little longer.
@will @yaustar @Elliott,
@Elliott That’s completely fine, can I use a JSON instead of the editor State Graph? I was also wondering about the Blend UI that you made. Thanks

You can use JSON, yes. There’s a example from Elliott that has a state graph written in JSON.
Hello sorry to revive this old thread but is blend trees released?
Is there an editor version I can play around with for the 2d-directional? Or how could I use it inside the editor?
Right, I think it’s a code only system for the moment, the editor side is still a work in progress.
@yaustar can confirm this and if there is a release date.
Here is a relevant topic:
Is it possible to create “2D_CARTESIAN” anim state tree in editor?
I want to create this animation structure with editor but I think it’s not possible with editor right now?
I also saw another grid view kind of editor on PlayCanvas’s presentation but I’m not sure if we can get an access to it.
Hopefully there is a release date for this, can’t wait to play around with it inside the editor
@Elliott would know more about the timing here.

Unfortunately we don’t have a release date for exposing the Blend Trees in the Editor yet and it is only available via code as shown in these examples due to priorities of PlayCanvas as a whole:
However, if people do want to see it sooner, please do upvote add your support for the feature in this ticket here:
If there is more demand for this, we can re-prioritise
I do not have a github account so I will support from here
I hope there will be more demand you will re-prioritise
