  1. This is a wonderful and well though of preset, a real time saver that solved all my counter needs and even let me do things I didn’t realize were possible to make so simple. A real nice and elegant workflow!

  2. How do I create two different symbols on the right and left side? Ex: $5.6M the dollar sign shows up on the right side too when I check ‘left symbol’

    1. Hi brooke
      The Counter Preset shows the same symbol on both sides, to work around this you can type both symbols and mask out the unwanted symbol on each side. To turn off the right symbol appearance, turn off the ‘Right Symbol‘ checkbox.

  3. Nice tool!
    Took some minutes to find out that you have to enter the Symbol character on the actual text layer (it seems evident afterwards), but other than that everything’s fine.

  4. Hello,

    I’m interested in this product, but before I purchase I wanted to ask a question. Does this plugin enable counting by multiples of any value?


  5. Thank you so much for making this awesome tool! I spent so much time trying to do a simple counter that went into the millions, but it was unsuccessful until I bought Counter! You guys ROCK.

  6. Hello, I’ve got After Effects in English, but I want to use the Italian preset. My aim is to simply using “.” instead of “,” when I separate the thousands.
    However when I do use the italian preset, all the expressions are messed up and it doesn’t work… Can you help?

    1. Hi su-wun, first you should only use the English version of the preset if that is your installed language. And to get a dot (.) divider instead of a comma (,) all you need to do is to change the comma (,) effect name to a dot (.).
      I hope this will help you achieve your desired effect. For further support please visit our contact page.

  7. Not sure what I’m doing wrong. Trying to get $ to show at the left of the number. I have the Left Symbol ON and the $ in the text but it’s not showing up. What am I missing? Thanks

    1. Hi Michael, it looks like you did everything right. but just to make sure, is it possible that you changed the name of the layer to $ instead of changing the content of the text layer with a double click?
