Left continuous
In mathematics, a continuous function is a function for which, intuitively, "small" changes in the input result in "small" changes in the output. Otherwise, a function is said to be a "discontinuous function". A continuous function with a continuous inverse function is called "bicontinuous".
Continuity of functions is one of the core concepts of topology, which is treated in full generality below. The introductory portion of this article focuses on the special case where the inputs and outputs of functions are real numbers. In addition, this article discusses the definition for the more general case of functions between two metric spaces. In order theory, especially in domain theory, one considers a notion of continuity known as Scott continuity. Other forms of continuity do exist but they are not discussed in this article.
As an example, consider the function h(t), which describes the height of a growing flower at time t. This function is continuous. In fact, a dictum of classical physics states that in nature everything is continuous. By contrast, if M(t) denotes the amount of money in a bank account at time t, then the function jumps whenever money is deposited or withdrawn, so the function M(t) is discontinuous.

Blend Tree producing non-continuous blends
Hello, I have a strange problem with the blend tree in MecAnim. With 3 motion fields in the blend tree controlled by a float parameter from 0.0 to 1.0, you would expect values 0 to 0.5 to blend from anim1 to anim2, then from 0.5 to 1.0 from anim2 to anim3. Instead, the result for 0.5 to 1.0 is to blend from anim3 to anim2, with 1.0 snapping discontinuously to anim3. For example, if you had 3 motion fields with Look Left, Look Forward, and Look Right, adjusting the blend parameter from 0
