Making a simple countdown clock in AE
on Oct 14, 2010 at 9:34:34 pm

Hi all,

I searched and counldn't seem to come across a post that fit my needs--

I am doing a fitness video for a client, and it requires a 20 second, 10 second, and total workout running time countdown clock to be displayed on screen during the video.

I successfully downloaded countdown clock script for AE, but it gave me no control as to font, color, etc.

Can someone point me to a tutorial, or run me through step by step on how to do this? I'm pretty experienced in photoshop, FCP and Avid but very new to AE. Any help appreciated!!

If you're new to AE, I highly suggest going here.

This will need to be acomplished using an expression. If you understand that, then check out Ebberts MotionScript web site.
