having trouble with cameras

My 3-D skills leave much to be desired - so this will probably sound like the uneducated question that it is: I happened upon a lovely camera movement that rotated a wheel-like object around its x-axis and zoomed in on it in one smooth combined movement.
I had achieved it by turning on the record button at time frame 14sec, moved the playhead to 18 sec, and adjusted the orbit and dolly controls in the upper right of the Motion 5 screen to where I wanted them. The only problem was that the whole movement started at time 0, interfering with what was happening between time 0 and 14 sec..
I've tried camera behaviors and a bunch of other recording sequences, but can't get Motion to start the movement where I want and to do both the orbit and dolly aspects simultaneously.
