    I understand about "safe title" areas when you are dealing with
    television but what about if you are doing a version for film festivals


    Should I use the same "safe title" areas for subtitles for something
    that I intend only to be projected on to a screen from a BetaSP tape.
    And does the type have to be as big.

    When you project - there appears to be more real estate that you can
    use, and the subtitles will be much bigger than if they appear on

    Your opinions would be helpful

    Thanks in advance

    Generally speaking, yes. When video projectors are set up, there is
    usually not the amount of overscan found on monitors.

    But don't count on it happening. It depends on the person alligining the
    projector, or how they are instructed to do it.

    AGREE! When in doubt ALWAYS, that is ALWAYS use the safe areas in case the
    video produced is used in some other application and thus avoid a client
    making baaaaad comments or coming back upset. Safe is what it says, "safe"
