The quick and easy way to create an animated counting display over your footage in Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro. Ideal for creating a countdown timer to the start of an event or for coverage of sporting events such as races and against-the-clock challenges.



  • "You cannot believe how happy I am to have discovered your website and downloaded the DH_Counter plug-in. I've been looking to buy one for months now and the best I could find without leaving me poor and hungry for a week would have been part of a costly bundle."
