Delay Time


This node subtracts the delay input from the time input.

The essence of this subtraction is changing the frame at which an animation will start when using one of the animation nodes or using the output in a custom animation node tree. That is because negative values are clamped to zero in the animation process so subtracting 20 from the input frame will result in zero for the first 20 frame.


  • Time(s) - An input time(s).
  • Delay(s) - A value or list to subtract from the time(s) or the frame(s) at which the animation will start.


  • Time(s) - The delayed time(s).
