How do I add a Broadcast Safe?
on Sep 20, 2012 at 9:53:25 am

Hi there
I'm editing a rock concert with lots of nice bright coloured lights.
It's in PAL ProRes 720x576 anamorphic.
I want to keep the punch but then add a broadcast safe to legalize it. In FCP I just drop on a filter... in Color there is a tick box... what's the procedure in Resolve for doing this? I've got thousands of shots and really don't want to have to individually tweak the saturation curves for each one!
I've seen some posts suggesting using a LUT so I tried adding to my last node "1D Output LUT - Datatovideoscale"... which successfully clamped the chroma and highlights, but then also lifted the black levels 10% so the blacks were gray!?!
Am I right to use a LUT? And how do I stop it lifting the blacks?
Many thanks

On the render tab, right before you output, there's a box that you can select full range data or broadcast levels. No need to add a LUT, which I don't think would really help anyway.

Thanks William - found it!
Strange it only limits the luminance and not also chroma levels?

[David Scott] "Strange it only limits the luminance and not also chroma levels?"

This is true, currently there is no way to limit the chroma levels inside resolve.
