Hi, Bert, Bob -
I actually believe Bob might be asking about pausing and starting up
action again. And this should be able to be done in a couple of ways
Have you seen the "scripting" category in an object's viewer? There
is a "pause script" command there which you should be able to use.
There should be a way to insert a pause by of putting something into
a holder as well, I am thinking of something like a rest in music so
that the cursor could "play a few blanks" and then resume. You
could probably make a "transparent player" and insert that in the
holder for a few frames and that would do the job.
Do others have advice for Bob here?
