Safe Colors

The BCC Safe Colors filter prevents clips from having saturation values that exceed the legal limits of broadcast standards. Use this filter to limit the values that are present in the image.

In addition to being able to adjust the saturation limits, the filter allows users fine tune the pixels in the image that are affected.

  • Final Output displays the final rendered effect.
  • Zebra Pattern displays the image with a cross-hatch zebra pattern overlay where pixel values are outside of the legal broadcast limits (as determined by the filter parameters.) Note that the zebra pattern animates only when playing the timeline.
  • Clipped Pixels displays the image with red values superimposed over areas that are not within the legal broadcast limit (as determined by the filter parameters.) The blue/green pixels are unaffected by the filter. If you view only the red channel, the affected pixels display as a mask.
