number animate

hay every one, so I have a question regarding animation, but not to armeture animation, it’s all about animation a text, so I want to make an animation of somekind of a semulation, and in it, I want to add a 3d text number that go’s from 0 to 1 ,I made one by creating every number and given each one of them, a material, and animate the alpha based on the frame and the second, but it’s not a professional way to do something like that, and more of it, it’s to hard, so how can I animate the text numbers on blender the easy way, or what is the easy way if there are other’s way

I would write a little python script that change the text content.
Or you can look into the addon animation nodes that can do that quite easily …

oh OK I’ll look into that thanks
