Trying to get effects to deploy in the center of a layer rather than the beginning all the time. Is this some kind of weird bug or am I doing something wrong? Pixel Polly or shatter. I can't them to delay start?
I don't know about Pixel Polly, but shatter can absolutely be delayed. Shatter is created when the force hits the layer and in the "force/wireframe" view you can see it's already interacting with the layer. Just twirl down "Force" and move it so it's not smashing into the layer, key frame it's position and it will explode the layer whenever you want.
