BCC Light Zoom and broadcast safe levels
on Oct 18, 2008 at 5:39:35 am


I am currently working on a project in which the client wishes to utilize Light Zoom effects.

So here's the question:

Is there a risk of exceeding NTSC broadcast-legal levels when using this effect?

Light Zoom has an intensity value range from 0 to 500.

I want to assume that the product is designed to stay within a legal limit regardless of the intensity; but on the principal of "better safe than sorry" I have to ask...

Thank you for taking a moment to consider this query, I appreciate your assistance!

Hi Max,

If you are using the BCC filters directly within a host, you can add the BCC Safe Colors filter to the end of the output by placing this at the top of the filter stack. If you are using RED to render, you can enable the color safe output for any project by launching RED, then selecting from the pulldown menu: Edit>Project Settings. There is a checkbox titled Generate Safe Levels - enable this to clip the output to color safe levels.
