I'm using Relativity/DR Follower on quite a few objects to follow the motion of another item. Pretty straight forward. There's an "Optional time Delay Control Object" so I could use a null to change the offset of the animation with "Use Object Extension for Follow delay" on - gives me a nice rippled/offset animation.

It should be so simple but the Optional time Delay Control Object bit isn't being added to the final expression. Anyone know what I have to do to get this to work, or have an example of it so I can copy/paste into the correct channel.

Tearing my hair out, it should only take 10 secs to do but just seems broken. Grrrr....

Heres what I've found. For some reason, it only seems to work by selecting an object/something with geometry - nulls don't get written to the equation(?). I've found the solution is to select an object from the drop-down (i.e., not a null) and when OK'd, replace the name of the geometry with the name of the null in the script window - then copy/paste script to others using the handy copy/arrow up/down functionality. Blimey :-/
