Hi all,

I've come up with this animation http://www.loepzuiver.net/faq/countdown.mp4

wondering if this is possible with expression, instead of changing keyframes everytime i would use this countdown.

Here's a pretty basic expression that should do what you need:

// set end time to comp duration
beginTime = 1;
endTime = 10;
counterStart = 269;
counterEnd = 130;
Math.floor(linear(time , beginTime, endTime, counterStart , counterEnd ))

Just realized that I didn't mention you would create a text layer(cntl+alt+shift+t), twirl down and add that expression to the source text.
