Method 2: How to add a countdown timer on a video in Premiere Pro

Premiere Pro, a timeline-based video editor, can help you add countdown to video as well, but it is more suitable for experts instead of beginners as pre-made countdown elements are not available here. That is to say, you need to create the countdown entirely on your own. The guidance is listed below:

Step 1
Create a transparent video and add it to the timeline.
