Customizable Countdown Video Overlays

Need a countdown timer for your game but want to be able to customize the backdrop? Grab these countdown overlays that come in various font colors and positions on your screen with transparent backdrops to create your own countdown!


*Note: This resource is for personal use only and the overlays may not be used in a video for commercial purposes. For use only within your church or ministry.*

*Note: These files work best on a Mac computer. Converting the files to .mp4 or trying to use Windows or other non-Apple software removes the transparency from the files.*

Turn any video (or picture or video-based game) into a countdown! Built so you can overlay them on top of another image or video, these countdowns come with transparent backgrounds! Use them to put countdowns on your own videos or images in any video editing software. Note: Minimal video editing skills required.

Each countdown is built to be “overlayed” onto an image via a video editing software. The background will show up transparent so that only the numbers show on top of whatever image you want to use! Never used a video editor or video overlay before? No worries! The process is fairly simple, and we walk you through step-by-step in the provided instructions. General instructions are available for any editing software, and specific, step-by-step instructions are available for Final Cut Pro and iMovie. 

These transparent countdown overlays come in:

  • Black or white font (.mov)
  • 1, 3, and 5-minute intervals (.mov)
  • Lower right or center of the screen (.mov)

Note on Black Font: The video will appear all black until you give it a white/light backdrop to sit on top of.

This product is a digital download, which means you will receive a link to download the files after completing the check-out process. Please note: It is too large of a file to view on a mobile device.
