definitely more of an "art" question...
on May 30, 2007 at 2:53:22 pm

Regarding titles & name supers for HD television programs, my 'perfect world theory' has been to edit fully in 16x9 mode, and to create two separate timelines:
- One (both HD and SD) using the safe title guidelines in 16x9, with the goal of both HD delivery as well as anamorphic for DVDs.
- The other (SD only) ignoring the bottom safe title, and laying to tape with the MCA's Video Output selected to 'letterbox downconvert'... thereby making the titles sit comfortably right above the black bars.

Trouble with this idea is that DVD authors just use the anamorphic version and set the DVD up to do the letterboxing work... which of course has the name super hanging in limbo like 25 lines above the black bars.

What have you folks been doin'?

Don't put your title in the lower third and make it more artful!

for 4X3 output, I like to use the letterbox for grafix.
I do my own authoring. I don't trust this stuff int he hands of others for the final produt.

Oh Grinny, you're such a control freak. I'd bet you change your own oil as well. Let the Authors have a career, will ya? They're people too. (So I'm told)

Pix, ole buddy,
I have to agree with Grinner. I can't see putting that much work into something just to allow some guy that never knew what I was doing, doesn't care what I was doing, or why I did it my way, and just wants to get it done quickly and effortlessly, because he has no interest in what I shed blood and sweat to create.

Couldn't agree more. That said, I edit for a station, and thus by default use the station's DVD Authoring Guy (not exactly his title). What might you suggest we do to combat the supers problem - encode two separate versions of the show onto the DVD?

It's a team effort.

[Pixel Monkey] "encode two separate versions of the show onto the DVD?"

Sounds as good as any thing else I can think of. If you are creating two versions of timeline. Create two versions of playback. I think I read what you were doing right.
