Countdown Clock for New Year's - ??

A client asked me to produce a thirty minute DVD of a COUNTDOWN DIGITAL CLOCK for a New Year's Eve party. HOW DO I DO THIS IN AFTER EFFECTS??

Thanks in advance,

Jim

I just something similar for this. I found this in one of the forums on CC.

Basically, I just created my text layer and put the following expression in the source text.

You'll need to adjust the Clockstart. This example countdowns 25 minutes.

Hope that helps.


//countdown clock
ClockStart = 25; //Start time in minutes
start = ClockStart*60; //start time in seconds
compTime = start - time;
eTime = Math.floor(compTime);
csec = Math.floor((compTime - eTime)*100);
ms1 = Math.floor(csec/10);
ms2 = csec%10;
hr = Math.floor(eTime/3600);
h1 = Math.floor(hr/10);
h2 = hr%10;
min = Math.floor((eTime - hr*3600)/60);
m1 = min;
m2 = min%10;
sec = eTime - hr*3600 - min*60;
s1 = Math.floor(sec/10);
s2 = sec%10;
m1 + ':' + s1 + s2
