    New Release, 3.0.16. Countdown timer.


    I have added a countdown timer checkbox in the Text effect


    Here is how this works
    1) Put whole integer numbers as either line 1 or line 2 in the text.
    2) Click the "Countdown Timer?" check box


    Press play.
    Timer will start with the number you entered and count down to zero.

    Hi Sean, would it be possible to have 2 position sliders for text? X slider and Y slider. Currently the slider makes line 2 text go diagonally up the element. At least that's what is happening when I try the new countdown timer on my small (12 x 30) matrix.

    Yes, i am going to work the position controls.


    also i am thinking making an option for the display countdown to be like 3d 11h 22m 13s
    you would still enter seconds
    3600 = 1 hr
    86400 = 1 day
    .etc


    i would just decode the seconds if they are large


    thanks
    sean

    I know this is a little old, but I was wondering if it would be possible to have a version that did this, but without the d/h/m/s characters?
