I am generally always confused over which 'line' I need to work to for title safe areas when creating broadcast graphics (working and delivering at 1920x1080)
In after effects the default is action safe at 10% and title safe at 20%. Are these the correct values? Also there is then the centre cut safe zones for non-widescreen displays. Which should I work to as a industry standard for broadcast delivery? (obviously if there is a channel tech spec that specifies the I'd follow that, but just wondering whether the default is to allow for 4:3 safe or not?)

A lot of people seem to be ignoring 4x3 when making HD graphics.

I don't, but I DO play fast & loose a bit by letting text stray beyond 4x3 title safe almost to action safe. It doesn't seem to hurt... and I have a 4x3 TV set at home which I still use, to check what grandmas & grandpas see on their sets. No problems so far: the graphics aren't cut off.
