After effects has a limit of a 3 hour composition, so, even though you can create an expression that'll create Days, hours, minutes, seconds, you won't be able to create a long enough video. Besides a video that is 72 hours long is going to be HUGE and most computers will struggle to play it, even if it is just a countdown clock.

Anywas, that being said, this script should do what you're after.

Code: Select all
`countspeed = 1;clockStart = 0; function times(n){  if (n < 10) return "0" + n else return "" + n} clockTime = clockStart +countspeed*(time - inPoint); if (clockTime < 0){  minus = "-";  clockTime = -clockTime;}else{  minus = "";} t = Math.floor(clockTime);d = Math.floor(t/86400);h = Math.floor(t/3600);min = Math.floor((t%3600)/60);sec = Math.floor(t%60);ms = clockTime.toFixed(3).substr(-3);minus + times(d) + ":" + times(h) + ":" + times(min) + ":" + times(sec)`
