path animation

can someone tell me how to do the following
I have animated a dog running around in a circle. the circle is a path and the dog is parented to it. I need the dog to stop on frame 492 and maintain that position but the path is controlled by an ipo curve which is set in a cyclic mode


Hi saltysaurus,

Anything to do with the properties of your NLA strip, select strip and press N. Strip Start Finish, Repeats, Action Start end. Hold Button??

Have a look at this - - similar things discussed further down re switching from one path action to another non path action [ if thats your plan ]. Worth a look
