UI Mask for timer

I am trying to make some mask for ui timer:
I have this image:

How can I do some kind of ui mask, but not 1-bit?
We don’t want to create animation sequence, because it’s will have a large size.

Hi @pekarnik,

You could use a plane with an opacity map that creates a hole above the counter. This is the approach we’ve used here:

Forget to say, this is 8th wall project, so background is a video from camera

I didn’t get where are you use plane with alpha…

On the floor to fake a hole and allow part of what’s behind to be smoothly seen.

thank you

The other way I was think was to do in reverse. Have the numbers as the mask and animate the timer via the rect on the image element.

This is work! But have some artifacts on numbers, maybe need to change mask texture

Yeah, it won’t give you a nice anti aliased edge to the numbers but I can’t think of a better solution beyond making the engine handle alpha masks differently.
