Question How to make a random-ish idle animation sequence?

    I have an "idle" animation loop which consists of a number states with individual animations.

    When multiple characters are shown at the same time, all of them go through the states in sync simultaneously, which looks bad.

    I got the idea to advance animator states from a script by a random number, which means that the animations will be a lot more diverse if multiple characters are visible at the same time, but can't find the API to get the animator to skip the current state, or move to the next, or do a similar action.

    Is this even possible, and if not, how to "de-sync" multiple characters so they don't go through the same states and animations at the same time?
