  1. I don't know how to make number runs automatically like this one. Do we have to code? Can anyone know and show me the tutorials about it? Thanks all!

    You're going to have to do it manually or use more sophisticated tools. There is no way to do this automatically in WMM.

    After Effects, Vegas, Premiere and Avid all have counters that can be manipulated in various ways. Various third party plug-ins also exist for them. You can create counters in Avisynth or FFmpeg over black video that you may be able to superimpose in WMM or virtualdub. You can try to find something suitable on the web as stock footage, again to superimpose.

    There are many ways to skin this cat, each with its own workflow.

    Thank you so much!

  8. Here's simple AviSynth script that will produce a counter that changes with each frame:

    Code:
    BlankClip(width=160, height=48)
    ScriptClip("""subtitle(string(current_frame*17+640000), size=40, text_color=$ffffff)""")
    In this case the counter starts with 640000 in the first frame and increments by 17 with each frame from there:

    Since this is simple antialiased white text on a black background you can use the same video as an alpha channel. Here's the counter overlaid onto a small video, slowed to 2 fps:

    @ jagabo, how do you make that clip last longer than 240 frames? I added "AssumeFPS(30000, 1001).Trim(0, 2000)", but to no avail.

    adjust blankclip's length parameter

    e.g.

    blankclip(length=2000) would return a 2000 frame clip

    Thanks, but I already figured out an alternative. I just wanted to make a 60 sec countdown. This is what I came up with for 29.976 fps:
    Code:
    BlankClip(width=220, height=200)
    ScriptClip("""subtitle(string(current_frame/1), size=200, text_color=$ffffff)""")
    AssumeFPS(1).ChangeFPS(30000, 1001)
    Trim(0, 1799)
    Reverse()
    It works well enough for my purpose.

    Using a variation of Jagabo's script, I made a nice little 60 second countdown clock that anyone can use. It will make a good overlay for sports and such. Here it is:
