    Title Tool no longer broadcast legal???

    In previous versions of MC, titles created in the Title Tool were already broadcast legal between 16-235, needing no additional correction.   Now, in 6.5.3 the titles are 0-255.   When did this change?

    Ah Terry, It changed around MC6.5.

    It has been logged as a official bug see here:

    One might have hoped that a master rejecting bug was considered important and the fix implemented in 7.02.

    But no.

    Well I did a quick test in v7.02 and it did seem fixed.  But I would not guarantee that. 

    David - did you test it or are you just going by the Read Me?

    Jef,

    I tested with a white title. Pretty sure it was 255.

    I am rendering a H264 at the moment, I will look again in the morning.

    David Yardley:

    Ah Terry, It changed around MC6.5.

    I only upgraded to 6.5 a few months ago, so I never noticed it before.  I always color correct all my shots individually for broadcast, so it was only by chance that I saw a title exceeding the 16-235 limits on the Y waveform monitor.  (I don't normally check Avid-created titles on the scope, since they've always been broadcast legal.)

    David Yardley:

    One might have hoped that a master rejecting bug was considered important and the fix implemented in 7.02.

    They should fix it in 6.5.  This is not a "new" feature, but something that has always worked in the past.  Even though I bought the 7.0 upgrade (though I haven't yet installed it), those with 6.5 should not be forced to pay for an upgrade to fix something that was never broken before.

    I'm counting on the dog to remind me to throw on a safe color limiter before I output.  Smile

    Did Marquee have the same problem, and if so, has it also been fixed?
