    I noticed the code allow you to use SetBool to enable and disable a trigger.
    @Mecanim-Dev is this an expected behaviour or it's something that may break in any moment and no longer work?

    this is expected and this is supported.
    A trigger is simply a bool with some semantic.

    I noticed you can't check a trigger for a false condition, since it's just a bool could you expose it as such in the transition conditions?
    It would be useful sometimes to validate that the trigger has not fired in certain transitions.
