How to make animation "rest"
In the zip I've attached there's a .ndbx with a little type animation. But since I would like to display more words instead of one without losing legibility I need the animation to "rest" for a bit once it's completed. In other words my necessity here is being able to stop the animation for a few seconds when lines are still before they start moving again. How could I achieve that through nodes?
Wishing you all a nice 2019,

You can use

One way to do this is to let your wave function dip below 0 (the point at which the words become legible) and use the max (wave, 0). That way the value you feed into resample will stay at zero for as long as the wave dips below 0.
You can fiddle with the range in the wave function to get the amount of pause you want. I used -5 in my example (attached). The animation is a little choppy inside NodeBox but looks fine when you save it as a movie.
