Hello. I'm newbie with this software. However, first thing I want to learn is how to live change text in AE ?
Let's say i'm filming my phone and it shows that my battery is 50%. What kinds of tutorials should I follow to make that 50% increase live.
I mean 51,52,53,54 and it would constantly grow to my set number.
However, even if I move my phone that number should still keep growing.
Thank you in advance for your answers
1. put a text layer with any number in it
2. add to a text layer Slider Control - from Effects & Prests
3. pick whip Source Text parameter to Slider Control Slider
4. To round the numbers - edit your expression from: effect("Slider Control")("Slider") to Math.round(effect("Slider Control")("Slider"))
5. put 40 in Slider parameeter and put a keyframe
6. go to time on timeline where you wish your countdown to end
7. put exact number that will be the last one - f.eg. 72 (it should create second keframe on slider parameter)
8 Play it back and enjoy.
