Hi,

I am building an animated counter in After Effects CC 2014 using the expression below with a slider effect on a text layer.

Math.round(effect("Slider Control")("Slider"))

This works great! Except that it limits out at 1,000,000 and I need final count of over 9,000,000.

Does anyone know of a trick to overcome this count ceiling using this effect? Or another means to achieve the same goal?

Thanks!

Instead of using a slider control, use an angle control. Type your numbers into the angle(it will convert it to degrees, on the effect, but not the number output). Angle doesn't have a limit like slider does.

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. I will try the angle effect, but also found that this thread helpful: https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/227/25998
