So, I loved the Countdown idea that is now possible in 7.1. Thank you Resolume! Well done! I recreated the demo clip that Resolume made so you don't have to. But that was just the start of creating other designs. I made a different Text "size" envelope where each digit zooms in. Then another where the end size amount increases, so it gets more dramatic as you get closer. Last, I added one of Doc Optic's 3D text clips, using Linear Cloner (Credit Doc Optic and link to 3D Text tutorial below). Here is the comp file.
Nothing here is "groundbreaking" yet, but I hope to add more soon. Enjoy!
It would be awesome if you could add any or all of these to this thread:
1. You share your new ideas for countdowns here using built-in effects. So that I/we can make them a reality, if possible.
2. Share your variations of this comp here.
3. Share your gig pictures using these countdowns from your show.
Now if only I could set a target time and reference system time for a longer status of the countdown. For example, when I start the night you would see that there are several hours to go and the band can just look back at any time to see how long they have (hours, min, sec) until the target time. That would be amazing!
I am hoping to learn more about plugin coding in 2020 and maybe the best way to achieve this without Touchdesigner or other external apps. If you have any ideas, PM me. I would love to avoid ideas that will not work and wasted time. Thanks!
