syncing animations for transitions help needed!

So i have all my animations working as intended. however there is a detail that is bugging me.
when i run it plays the running animation when i run and shoot it plays the run and shoot animation.

both animations are identical except for an arm with a gun

however when i transition to the run/shoot from the run it starts the run/shoot animation at the beginning, making in look jerky.
is there anyway to start an animation on the same frame as the last animation playing?
I am using paper 2d and flipbook animations

We may need to see your set up or get some more information…but check your blend in times for the animation…maybe a larger number will smooth that transition out…
