    Just in time for new years.


    2 digit Countdown timer. I calculate the number of frames needed for one second timing. So the sequence duration kind of doesn't matter. You countdown from 15 and your sequence is 15 seconds.




    countdown Effect Settings
    username f
    user_target AA_MATRIX
    effect_class countdown
    submit Submit Form to create your effect
    effect_name COUNT_DEMO1
    window_degrees 360
    frame_delay 100
    color1 #FFFFFF
    color2 #000000
    start_seconds 10
    fade_3d n
    seq_duration 1
    fade_in 0
    fade_out 0
    OBJECT_NAME countdown
    batch 0
    show_frame N
