ÃœberNumber (Tutorial + Preset)

After Effects CC 2019 Update!

Robert Kjettrup brought to my attention the fact that due to the changes in how After Effects handles functions, the original UberNumber was broken and does not work in Adobe CC 2019 and higher.

Thanks to him and John Colombo (from Adobe) for providing me with a quick fix that makes it work in the new, recent versions of the software.

I have patched up the preset and re-uploaded it at the same link below. It should now work fine in After Effects CC 2019.
