Hello, I'm trying to create a simple number counter MOGRT for social media views/Likes..

Knowing the number limitation of the Slider Control, I used the Point Control..

But the Essential Graphics is limiting the Point Control to the number 32,768 max.

while in the Effect Control, it is limitless!

any trick or work around to bypass this please?

Thank you

That's apparently because some of that stuff does use legacy AE API functions instead of the newer ones. Depending on what you need, you could probably create some expressions so the counts can be multiplied or offset by combining two slider values. Entirely depends on how far you actually want to go and whet the increments are supposed to be. more specific info would certainly help to outfit you with some code bits.

Thank you so much Mylenium for the prompt reply..

what "stuff...use legacy AE API functions"? i'm sorry i didnt get you or you didnt get me 😉

The slider control doesnt go beyound a million!

the Point control is limitless (and that's good) using its x value instead of the slider works perfectly,

but when i put it in the essential graphic it doesnt go beyond 32,768!!

 

I have no problem using expressions to multiply that number, but i dont see the need for it here.

i just want some kind of a "slider" to reach 3,000,000 Likes or Views or more.
