Animation between two abstract state

I’m implementing an application with two abstract states. But it seems like ionic doesn’t handle the animation for the transition between two abstract states. Does anyone know how to implement the animation? Thank you so much!

I would like to know this too! I have a login state which then transitions to a menu.dashboard state, however because menu is abstract there is no transition animation! I can’t work out why but it happens with all abstract state transitions like that. The animation is shown however when changing from something like menu.dashboard to menu.more
