Tutorials/Video/TV safe area 16x9
If you don't know about the TV safe area, read up!
In some video editors, the 16:9 safe area is indicated as the usual 10%. However, in some of our workflows, 16:9 gets cropped to 4:3 to give fuller images on some mobiles. Hence you certainly want the title safe area to be the usual 4:3 title safe area, contained within the 4:3 image.
Similar considerations apply for broadcast, see here:
