I am finding multiple instances where it would be really beneficial to have a node that receives an input of some type (list, image, fire, or other value like rotational or positional data), holds onto the value and delays passing it through the composition until after a set period of time has lapsed.
One of the main instances is when I want to create a staggered domino type effect for multiple elements (not exact duplicates of each other). I'm currently trying to use Measure Time>Is Greater Than>Became True along with a Hold Value node to get this type of effect and have found my composition becoming huge, sluggish and messy and I'm still not quite achieving the effect I'm aiming for. This particular composition would become very close to about 1/2 the size if a node like "Delay Value" existed and I know it would streamline a few other ideas I had as well.
Is it a big task to create a node that can cache a value for a set interval before passing it downstream like I just described?
