In this video, author Nick Harauz defines what safe levels are and how you can use the broadcast safe effect in Apple Final Cut Pro X to make sure you remain within them.
- The broadcast safe effect ensures that our images are safe…in both luminance and saturation for broadcast.…Let's see how we can apply this effect to clips.…Here I am in my Final Cut Chapter Two/Seven project…and here's a clip that I've color corrected…and just looking at the clip…it looks like some of this image is a bit overexposed…and I'm going to confirm that by pressing Command + Seven…and heading to my Waveform…and checking out my Luma waveform…and confirming that there are some pixels above 100.…
