Mexican wave cubes: Copy animation with delay

There used to be a timing offset in Blender (Slow Parent) which allowed a stack of cubes (or other objects) to copy each other’s animation, but with delay, so that it resulted in something like a mexican wave effect. This appears to have been removed.
I want to use it because tweaking the effect is very tedious if one-at-a-time keyframe.

The Free Plugin “Commotion” has everything you want…

Older Video but still valid.


Wow - I haven’t yet gone through the full video but even the first few minutes if giving me lots of ideas for other applications (I’m wanting to make background effects for stage bands etc) - Thanks for the link. Looks great so far.
