I want to have an object Follow a Path until some percent of the path and then stop Follow Path:

enter image description here

I can set the frames to animate the path:

enter image description here

and the offset time to start the animation:

enter image description here

But I don't see a way to stop the animation (small cube towards large cube) when it is part-way along the path. I created and aligned the objects and path with the empty objects (in blue), so that they would all be aligned. And actually it would be better if I could stop the animation at some intermediate path vertex.

In 3ds Max, I am able to frame-key % path, so that I can speed up and slow down a path-based animation.

How can I accomplish this?

Change your follow path constraint like this:

enter image description here

Then keyframe offset from 0 to 0.8
