How do I create a counter?

I’m not entirely sure which section this should be posted in, so please feel free to correct me or move it to the appropriate section. Basically, I want to animate text to count upwards. I feel like there should be some sort of keyframe to apply, but I don’t know which one to use or where to start. Any help is appreciated.

So for example you might want a row of zeros to change over time to a number, say at one second intervals?

There are many ways to do this - a 10 sided prism for each row with a number on each side, then just move it round 36 degrees every second, then move the next one 36 degrees every 10 seconds, etc.

Or… use a plane with an image texture that is the number zero, have ten image textures and keyframe their value in the material node so they change every second for example.

Or, a placed text object that you edit every so many frames…

Some more info on what you want the result to look like wold be appreciated, otherwise we are guessing…

Cheers, Clock.
