Recreating The (500) Days of Summer Day Slate Counter
on Jan 24, 2011 at 10:05:52 pm

Hello, everyone. My I'm wondering if anyone here knows or has a way of recreating the day counter from (500) Days of Summer in Final Cut or Motion.

For those who have seen the movie, I just want the counter itself, not the background. For those who haven't seen the movie, here is an example of what I am trying to accomplish:

Skip to 1:00 -





Thanks in advance for any of your help.

-David

Assuming you have Motion 4, you could do this quite easily with the Numbers generator.

I do have Motion 4. Where would I find the numbers generator? I looked before and didn't find much. (Then again, I looked back when I wasn't sure what I was looking for. I was just looking for something that seemed it might work.)

How does one stop the number from incrementing once you've reached your target number?

The only solution I've found is to fake it by creating a separate instance of the arrival #.
