What would be the fastest way to animate 3 minute countdown timer in Photoshop? The countdown is in the following format: HH:MM:SS.

I thought about creating three groups of layers: hours, minutes and seconds. In each of the group there would be 60 text layers representing values from 1-60. Then I would animate the timer "by hand" switching of and on different layers.

hi, and welcome to GD. Please let us know what you have tried, and pref. provide more info and/or screenshots as to how you are stuck. DA is not here to create tutorials for people directly, we need to know what you have tried. A google search on "photoshop countdown tutorial" gives you a bunch of alternatives. Depending on how you plan to use your counter, photoshop might not be the most efficient tool, though. –  Benteh Jan 25 at 19:30
    
Yes, that's pretty much the only way you can achieve that effect in Photoshop. Sorry if you expected any automation. –  MarcinWolny Jan 27 at 14:27
