    MP4 Video with Countdown timer layer and time delay

    benk67335304

      I work for an engineering software company and I'm creating some marketing videos for our software that will go on YouTube (they are MP4 format). These are to be quick videos that show a user how to do something in less than 2 minutes. We'd like to put a countdown timer layer on the video and have it start counting down maybe 10-15 seconds after the video has started. How can this be done in After Effects?

       

      Again, we want the timer to be able to be displayed on top of our video as it is in progress, and we need the time delay such that the timer does not start counting until we tell it to start counting in the video.
