    Countdown After Effects CC 2017

    AHauser282 Level 1

      I've tried a lot of methods for creating a countdown in AE CC 17. None of them work. I can't ever seem to get the the Numbers effect to count down as I need, and a text layer Track Matte-ing onto a shape layer is somehow hiding the entire count.

       

      All of the documentation and videos I've found are for an earlier version of AE (CS6 and CC 14 mainly), so I'm wondering if it is a version thing.

       

      I could also understand if it is a computer problem. I have often had a lot of problems with my iMac and the Adobe suite. In case you're wondering it is a late 2009 27" iMac with 16GB DDR3 RAM. But I mean it works .

       

      I could use quick and concise replies...

       

      Thanksabunch,
