Chapter 3. Managing Footage > Video-Safe Zones and Grid

Video-Safe Zones and Grid

You can superimpose a grid or video-safe zones over the image to better judge the placement of images. Obviously, these are simply visual guides, and are not included in the final output. Also, because video-safe zones indicate the viewable area of standard video monitors, you should display safe zones for images that match television's 4:3 aspect ratio.

To show the video-safe zones and grid:

In the Footage window, do any of the following things:

To view title and action safe zones, click the Title-Action Safe button (Figure 3.64 and Figure 3.65).

Figure 3.64. Use the Title-Action Safe button to see video-safe zones or grids.


Figure 3.65. Click the Title-Action Safe button to view video-safe zones.


To view a proportional grid, Option-click (Mac) or Alt-click (Windows) the Title-Action Safe button. (Figure 3.66).
