$(playpos) to run backward

I would like to be able to have playlen to show time remaining like in winamp window. I have tried to type $(playneg) and $(play-) just in case they might work with of corse no luck. With time remaining clock would eliminate need to tie-up space with 2 clocks.

Unhappy

here I go being stupid again BUT why couldn't a $(playneg) be made to work just the oppisite of a $(playpos) in render text without having to write all them scope thingys you got in your avs's (there is no need to write them for pos)?? and your counter seems to only start at 2 min which don't help on longer tunes.

Talking THANKS

THANK YOU tOger for your help though TomyLobo's help seemed easier for my simple mind to grasp.And it shows countdown with full time. I attached my first avs with down-counter and to show an idea on what I did with $(title) which I think is pretty cool for dummy like me....

hmm nice idea these changing colors
but try color modifier instead... i'll make an example... plz w8
but why Enabled on Beat for 999 Frame? you can disable it as there will be no 999 frames between 2 beats (at least not with the currently available hardware )

I use on beat cause in my simple mind I think logically that anything having to do with music should be on beat and can't understand why music wouldn't be on beat. And I guess that 999 will put it on as many fames as possible... of corse I could be way off, but that is my logic...

just check "Enabled"
it's always activated then
there's no need to enabled it on beat

If you can't say something nice, say something surrealistic.

I did some changes to your preset... see yourself It's actually 2 Versions...
1. a basic version with a Color Modifier and save-some-fps-code for the title text renderer it only renders the text if the track changes (actually if the track length changes but that should be enough i think ). It also masks the text, meaning it cuts it out and just replaces the parts of the original picture where there is text.
2. a slightly advanced version... better see yourself and try to change songs

btw if you don't know what an effect does, just try it out... best is i think to insert a render/picture into a blank preset and add the effect you want to test after that picture.

You were thanked above (though it was indirectly).. but this is directly.I appreciate it when people can take time to help out a dummy like me. I call me a dummy cause as much as I like what you did ... the stuff you have to write in those boxes go very way beyond my comprehension (I have absolutely no knowledge of that stuff). I just push buttons and change a number or - + sign and if it looks good to me on screen ,I save it. I occasionaly come up with a good idea... but usually need to put it out for others to do the work (not that I'm lazy.. just dumb).
So THANKS MUCH for the time and help,
Snoozin' Hermit
