    Broadcast Safe

    Hi all

    Quick question....does placing a color effect on the top track still clamp everything down to Broadcast safe like it used to? If not...anyone have a quick way to do that?

    TIA

    Best to use the safe color limiter effect.

    Just be careful of how much video you try to clip.  If levels are excessive you will have a lot of blown out hot spots on the parts of your video that get clipped.

    Use the safe color effect and set it to RGB 0-100%, composite can be turned off, check "422 safe"

    It's RGB 16-235. But actually 13-238 seems to be acceptable.

    Although a colour correction with the master curve set with black at 13=13 and white at 238=238 seems to do the exact same job. And you can grade with it too (carefully). Less render, get home quicker
