Game Logic timer and video editor

Hello all,

I hope I’ve come to the right place. I’m extremely new to Blender and all rendering programs in general. I’m looking to create a timer overlay for a video I’m editing in Blender. I’ve got the timer created and using game logic nodes/blocks? (I don’t know what you call these)

The problem I can’t seem to solve though is how to get the timer to start when the video plays. The text is overlay-ed on the video using ‘Add Scene’. The timer just doesn’t start when the video begins playing, it seems like I’m missing something to get the game logic nodes I created to start. Can anyone tell me what I need to to do to get the timer to start with the video? Or point me in the direction of a tutorial? I’ve already watched several that explained how to create it but none explain how to get it to work with the video editor when overlay-ed with another scene.

Any help is greatly appreciated. And thank you in advance for any.
