View Full Version : maya creating countdown timer

12 December 2012, 06:52 PM

Im looking into creating a countdown timer in beveled text that counts down from 30 minutes to 0 with seconds and minutes showing. I found the maya bonus tools "create formatted text node". If you click that it instantly gives some changing beveled text values, one looks promising, the timecode value. It counts up, but adds a minute every 23 seconds. I cant find how to change this value since there isnt any documentation. Tried changing the animation settings to 60fps, etc. nothing works it keeps adding a minute after 23 frames.

Can anyone figure out how to change this?

or you could just create two sets of numbers 0-9 and write an expression for the visibility that shows the correct shape based on the frame value
