| **After Effects Expression Random Number Counter 0-100 But Numbers Change Too Quickly (Math.round)**

Hi,

I am attempting to make a dynamic bar graph with fluctuating numbers to convey that the results of a poll are still in the midst of being calculated. I haven't even gotten so far as how to address how the bars will animate, but for the numbers I am currently using the expression Math.round(random(0,100)). The expression works, but the numbers move very rapidly and it would be nice to have more control over how fast the numbers fluctuate.

Is there a way to slow down the Math.round(random(0,100)) expression? Also, if someone has a recommendation on how to animate the bars moving up and down to match the numbers, that would be even better.

Thanks!

`Math.round(random(0,100))`

You could do something like this to have it change, for example, 5 times per second:

posterizeTime(5);

Math.round(random(0,100))

That did the trick!

You da man, Dan! Thank you!

`posterizeTime(5);`

Math.round(random(0,100))
