Broadcast Safe Filter - Still Need One?
on Dec 18, 2014 at 5:34:27 pm

I have 2 questions regarding broadcast safe filtering:

1. Do we still need to do it with all the new TVs out there?
2. Do we need to do it for films that are being shown in theaters?

If we don't need it in theater copies, will it look better without the filter?

Thanks.

[Neal Fox] "1. Do we still need to do it with all the new TVs out there?"

Yes. Network specs still require broadcast safe limits. brightness caps at 100 IRE, blacks at 0 IRE...etc. Show won't pass QC unless you are in the required range.

[Neal Fox] "2. Do we need to do it for films that are being shown in theaters?"

Nope. Never have.

[Neal Fox] "If we don't need it in theater copies, will it look better without the filter?"

Yes...because your blacks can go really dark, and your brights much brighter.

Great. Thanks.

One other question.
I'm using Final Cut Pro 6.8. Can I just make a nest of all the tracks and add one broadcast filter to that?
Or is it better to add a filter for each individual clip that needs it?

Tricky...FCP 6 stopped at 6.0.4. :) (sorry, snarky reply)

Nesting is fine. Or a trick I learned was to export Quicktime Conversion, as the same codec. That'll make it broadcast safe without the filter. But the nesting idea is fine. Or just highlight all the clips and add it to everything. I personally hate nests...
