How can I do a countdown without using Effects > Text > Numbers?

I know how to do a countdown using Effects > Text > Numbers, but that has a limit of "30,000" as the number.

I need to count down from 6,500,000,000. :)

Any ideas how to pull that off?

I was going to try out this tutorial but it has the same 30000 number limit.

This has been discussed before. It involves using an expression. I recommend a search in the main AE forum using the terms countdown and expression.

As I pointed out to Josh on a different forum where he cross-posted this question, the tutorial that he points to doesn't have the limitation that he thought that it did. It is, in fact, ideal for what he wants to do.
