Your suggestion below worked just great!
Originally, I just wanted to use a still figure. But, since I was in the animations section, I needed to use one of the animated sitting options, which works just great but introduced another problem - that of timing of the animation.
I don’t want it to start up right away. There is going to be camera movement in the scene and the animation needs to start at a particular time in the camera movement. I realize this is changing the nature of my original question, but I was wondering if you could suggest how to have the animated sitting animation begin at a certain time in the camera movement timeline?
