Hello! I'm struggeling trying to get the timer to show seconds only. At the moment the Timecode function shows Hours, Minutes, Seconds and Miliseconds HH.MM.SS.MM. But what if i would like to have SS.SS counting down from 85:00 to 00:00 with just Seconds. Similar the BBC news countdown: BBC News 57 Second Countdown 2016 Version B - YouTube​. I Tried to make a countdown in Adobe After Effects but I only got 0:00 and not 00:00. So is there just a simple way that i've missed or is it more complicated?

Cheers Fabian

If you want a countdown timer that starts at 85 seconds and counts down, you will either need to use After Effects or build it manually with frame by frame editing in Premiere as there is no 85:00 in timecode - it would be 02:25:00.

If you search around on Google, there are tutorials that will show you how to  make the countdown in AE, including adding the suppressed first digit. I used to have a link to one, but cannot find it now.
