I have my game where it zooms in on the player while hes standing and zooms out while hes running. I was wondering how I could make like a 3 second pause before the scaling I tried putting a System-wait X seconds before the set layout scale but that didn't work.
I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve, but would using the timer behahiour work?

I want it to wait 3 seconds before it starts to scale. I'm not sure how I would use the timer behavior for that.
set timer for 3 seconds
on timer set group scaling active..
in the group scaling have your scaling events..
What object would I give the timer behavior to?
Here's another attempt I made. This time it's waiting 5 seconds before it zooms but it only zooms .5 every 5 seconds. I'm trying to make it zoom the entire way every 5 seconds.
I'm thinking you want the timer, like LittleStain said.. Try it! You'll like it!
You can set it on the player. Timers have tags, so they work pretty easily.
if players moving
start the timer "wait"
on timer "wait"
