Hello All-
I am fairly new to After Effects, but wanting to do a probably complex thing.
I want to create a 30 minute countdown that is much like an Approximate Wait Time sign at Disneyland. I want the text to scroll vertically, kind of like a slot machine.

Any ideas?
Thanks so much!

I'll take my answer from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: 42. 42 seconds.

Actually, there are so many combinations of the AE version, amount of memory and processor speed -- plus a few other factors -- that making such an estimate is nigh unto impossible.

Okay, here's my best guess: less than 12 hours.

aharon rabinowitz did a 3 part tutorial on creating an odometer which sounds similar to the kind of animation you are looking for....
