action safe area very small on presentation TV
on Aug 31, 2016 at 9:38:55 pm

Hi...thank you for reading this.

Made a presentation 1024x576, (16.9-square pixels) motion graphics in AE.
Burned to DVD

When played on the Venues' tv, about half is cut off. Only red arrowed area showed.

I had made the actions to be displayed using the 2 farthest action safe, title safe areas, but when playing it turned out that the action was only safe to where the red arrows are.

How would one know in future, how much 'safe' space one will have at any venues display / playing place?

Should I have made the original comp size much smaller: instead of the 1024, maybe 680? or would that have helped. It seems to me that 16.9 was not the proportion of the red arrowed area?

Should I have check the dvd players settings first? The TV settings? Can venues tell u things when you call?

when i measure that area it is about 690 x 460....does any of this make sence to you all?

Any ideas, comments?

Thank you so much,


Life is here to enjoy.
