Question: Could you please advise me as to the choices I have for videos scopes, and other means to measure my color and luma levels within After Effect. I want to be assured that I am within legal standards” for broadcast.
Answer: Having video levels in a broadcast safe range are so important when working with broadcast video. Back when I worked at Postworks, there was a client who would always want to push the whites a bit whiter and the reds a bit more saturated, into unsafe territory. We warned him but he’s the client, right? I’d see his spots on tv and the buzz in the audio channel from the whites would make me cringe!
