YOu know that countdown at the beginning of old movies? The 4-3-2-1 with the clock wipe?
I could have swore that that was in the plug in section already, but damned if I can find it now. Serves me right for only downloading plugins on a need toknow basis.

Well can someone point the way to either the plugin or some stock footage of it?

If you have premiere, you can select one to use. Just go to File>New>Universal Counting Leader. Then choose your colors, drop to the timeline, and your set!

Jealous Flesh,
I don't have a plug-in, but I do have a QuickTime Movie of a real old film count down. It looks just like the real thing. I use it on my Demo Reel. If you are interested, e-mail me and I'll ether: e-mail it to you, or I'll just send it post. I promise, it looks great.

Cheers, and good luck.

Ada, that link is all I needed. Thanx. Dont worry about the speed. I need it for a transition, not for actual time.
My next project is an educational one, a smarter and more dark version of Bill Nye the Science Guy. I will be intercutting a lot of footage back to back, and the countdown will help smooth it out (only one "wipe" at a time, jsut to get the point across).
This is for my teaching career. Get to use Special Fx and everything to insert myself into the human mind via ALAM. HA! What a scream.
