Making Titles and Graphics NTSC Compliant

Chapter: Titling

Topic: Quality

When making titles and graphics for video, one must make sure that they conform to the standards of NTSC video. NTSC is much more restrictive than what computers can show, so graphics that may look fine on your computer monitor may flicker or appear washed out on TV. On the other side, graphics that conform to NTSC standards may look dark and dull on a computer monitor. It is best to work within these standards and then test your graphics out on a TV to see how they’ll really look.
