Closing modal doesn't animate out, closes instantly after duration

See original GitHub issue

When calling closeModal(), the closing animation never happens. It waits the amount of time of the duration, then instantly closes. I’ve tested this by setting the duration to 3 seconds… there is no visible transition happening when closing.

This problem however doesn’t exist on openModal(), which works fine.

  const defaultOptions: ModalOptions = {
    backdropOpacity: 0.9,
    disableFlingGesture: true,
    animateInConfig: {
      easing: Easing.inOut(Easing.exp),
      duration: 3000,
    animateOutConfig: {
      easing: Easing.inOut(Easing.exp),
      duration: 3000,

Any ideas?

I’ve reproduced the issue while calling closeModal.

The video is showing that animation doesn’t work while calling closeModal and the animation works while user clicks background to dismiss the modal.

The code is here:
