I'm wondering if anyone could help me. How do I make a clock like this one -->





... in After Effects CS4.
I'm doing a sports show at school, and we've done a race so we need that clock :)

Use the Numbers Effect over either a shape layer or a solid, with a little Bevel Alpha applied to the lower layer.

If none of what I just wrote made any sense, you need to start here:

If it turns out that you DO know what Dave is referring to, then here's a suggestion to go one step further:

You could create a simple expression to fill the value of your number effect with the current time.

Twirl down the "Numbers" effect, then twirl down the "Format" tab. Alt click on the stopwatch next to Value/Offset/Random Max and type the word "time" in the expression field that opens on the right.

Then set the "Decimal Places" value to "2" and away you go!
