Hi lwks Forumers!

I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to add a moving line around the edge of a video while it plays, to indicate the time remaining on a video.

You may have seen this kind of effect on Instagram videos. So I wondered if this is something anyone has figured out how to do on lwks.

Any help welcome. Thanks.

Hello,

Could you post a link to an example which shows what you're talking about?

I have so far only created a progress bar by using the "Simple 2D Shape" effect keyframe.

If you use three Simple 2D Shape effects and keyframe them differently, you could probably get the desired result.
Do you have experience with keyframing effect parameters?

It would be more comfortable with a specially designed effect. If you have some programming experience, we can show you how to program your own effects.


But maybe you are interested in other progress indicators, like something similar to a clock?:
