Crowd randomly switch to different clips within state Dec. 6, 2019, 9:47 a.m.

If you're in H18, you can use the new Output Clip parameter on the Crowd Transition DOP, and optionally turn on Use VEXpressions to override the destination state and/or clip

Yes, the Initial State parameter controls which state the agent starts out in for the simulation. States don't necessarily need the same name as a clip.

I think the issue you're seeing is that the “idle_*” pattern for the clip names in the ‘idle’ state includes the two “idle_to_walk” transition clips, so some agents appear to be walking because of that

The crowdsolver node has a warning if you Shift+MMB on it - “Values of the ‘state’ point attribute do not match any known state ('idle_1')”
On the Crowd Source SOP, change the initial state to just “idle”, in order to match your DOP setup
