Countdown Clocks

As most of you, I get tired of the same countdown clocks running every Sunday.  We have about 12 we purchased from somewhere and I just got bored with them.  In fact, some of them were just plain ugly.  Besides, I liked the idea of having a countdown clock match our series.

One day I stumbled upon some from Digital Hotcakes.

I take the series splash, import it into Final Cut, overlay the countdown, place it where I want and resize it using the ‘Motion’ tab, then adjust the Chroma Green key to make the green disappear – and just like that – a custom countdown for each series.  They have white and black of various font types.  Check it out and play around with it.  One cost $15 and I’ve used the same one since I bought it!
