    @altarvic,

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    I am using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.

    I have noticed this thread is under Vegas. Please let me know if you know any plugins or something else.

    Thank you!

    The 'stopwatch' in the clip appears to countdown from "50" to "0". Odd, as I tend to assume there are 60 secs in a minite.
    Using Premiere, one method would be to create lots of graphics (containing the numbers) and import them into a new Sequence. Then to select them all, and use the 'speed/duration' setting to make each graphic appear for one second.
    Finally, overlay the Sequence containng your clip, with your newly created 'clock' video.

    Hi Tim,

    Thank you for taking the time to answer to my question. Your suggestion would be the one I should be trying.

    Thanks! Masa

    The way I would do it in Vegas is to put a timecode FX into a piece of blank media at the required length then render it out. Place this clip in a new project and reverse it. This will give you a backward countdown.

    I'm sure this can also be done in Adobe Premier Pro CS5.
