Hi,

To create a down counter:
1. Create a text object. For a down counter in H:M:S format set the text objects's text value to:

$CV%02d:%02d:%02d

2. Add a Counter Command (see Library > Prefabs > Commands) to your template and:
a. Chose the desired text player.
b. Set the "Sub Command" property to "Set Counter". This defines the initial counter value (5*60*60 in your case).
c. Set the counter value in seconds using the "Value" property.

3. Add another Counter Command to your template and:
a. Chose the desired text player.
b. Set the "Sub Command" property to "Start".

For a working example project on counters please see the Counter example project that ships with Channel Composer as part of the example projects (see File > Example Projects...).

It's unfortunately not possible to display day and month using $ codes in text objects.

Regards,
