    Creating objects at certain points.

      Hi, I'm new to After Effects and have a really dumb question, as I'm sure the solution is probably very simple. But I want to add a shape at a certain point in a movie and as soon as it appears, I want it to explode using pixel poly. But the shape wants to start at the beginning. I tried keyframes to change its opacity until I want it on the screen, but then I come into my second problem which is the fact that the pixel poly starts as soon as the movie begins too, thus making the shape explode way before it's suppose to.

       

      So my question is: How do I add objects, effects, etc, at certain points in a movie?

       

      Thanks in advance!
