Countdown Clock with Hundredth seconds

I used the Countdown (Animation) module by sunep as a base for a countdown clock. But then I thought adding 100ths of a second would give it more life. However, I have run into a problem where it won’t countdown to 00 and there is a blip when the hundredths of a second reach 100. I have a feeling that the answer is staring me in the face but maybe I can’t see the forest for the trees any more, I’ve tried a bunch of things and they haven’t worked.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix it or can point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

The feedbhack loop is killing you here, I fixed that, but if you still need the reset pin, patch some logic with flipflops and all that stuff. Also, a Pause pin should be a toggle, not a bang ;)

Check This post here: Filestream duration in seconds to timecode

I used that to reformat the time in 1 go, but if you need hours, you need something extra there.

Colors in vvvv are from 0 to 1, if you just keep that in mind, you can right click drag to find a nice color, now you are typing (I am sure).

Wow! That is awesome!

sigh I wish I could take 6 months off and do nothing but learn this program properly. I’m going to study what you did carefully so that I understand it and maybe next time I set myself a “simple” project, I won’t make such a hash of it.

Thanks!

If you have a feeling you are making a hash (I am Dutch lolled a bit ;) ) out of it, just do what you did before, ask us, with an example, and we try to help.
