There have been other posts on this if you search. Some people have done just that with a clock overlay. If you can find a clip on black of a countdown timer, then this method works great. Others have used a sequence of titles for each second, but that can be time-consuming.

It's the 'Comp A add B' transition to overlay the clock clip on top of your other clip. There is no XML to generate the counter though.

Look for 'Comp A add B' in this thread view post 74030

If you mean an image of a clock counting down, you'll have to search for that.

there is actually one in the pc already it is hidden though. All you have to do is go to search

search pictures only

search hard drive

click search then stop

and if there is a link that says "show hidden and system files" click it. If there isn't then click change keyword and then search

let it search all the way and then look for the clock. If this still doesn't work I believe online in one of there fun packs there was a clock, but I think it was just a countdown not a real clock. So my bes bet is to try this one first...

Hope this one works for you...
