I try to create a countdown in after effects. Everything works.
Now to make it easier I need an expression to use the duration of the comp (mm:ss) as the start of the countdown.
When i use "time" my countdown starts at 00:00.
For example: The duration of my comp is 0:30:24:00
Now i want to start at 30:24 down to 00:00 with an expression.
