is there a script to add to the built in ones to put a delay in...

so for instance a logo could enter from a distance zoom in and after 4 seconds roll off left or right....

Thanks

No, there isn't any script for doing that but it is easily done in the Project Window. Press the Option key and drag the last Keyframe before the 4 second pause out 4 seconds then continue with the animation of the logo moving off to the right or left.

I'm still not understanding what it is you want the script to do. You just want a pause in between two actions within the script?

yes, when I use a built in "rotate around Y axis" script (i'm no animator!!) I want the script to start after a few seconds and then stop... not start rotating from the begining and continue until the end.

I could manually rotate the logo but scripts are easier especially when the time scale changes.

so basically I was hoping there would be a way of saying

PAUSE 10seconds

Not directly, you'd have to write a function to do that for you. I'll have to do some research to find out what scripting commands might be helpful for something like that.
