Best way to make a countdown timer

Hi All,

Newbie to intermediate after effects CS4 user. Just looking for some advice on the best way to create a "countdown timer" in After Effects.

This is the best example of of the type of "Count Down" timer i want to make (Skip to 40 Seconds in):





Ideally i'd just like to make the count down timer in After Effects, on a transparent layer, then export it out as a Quicktime movie, and overlay that in FCP.

Thanks in advance.

This has been covered MANY times on this forum and others. Just search "countdown" and you'll get tons of results.
