Ceiling Controls

Lastly, the Primary Out room has a single group of controls that aren’t found in the Primary In room. The Enable Clipping button in the Basic tab of the Primary Out room lets you turn on the effect of the three individual ceiling parameters for the red, green, and blue color channels of the current shot.

This option lets you prevent illegal broadcast values in shots to which you’re applying extreme Primary In, Secondary, or Color FX corrections if you don’t want to turn on Broadcast Safe for the entire program.

The Ceiling parameters can also be used to perform RGB limiting for hard-to-legalize clips.

Note: If Enable Clipping and Broadcast Safe are both on, the lowest of the two standards is applied.

These controls are used to adjust color channel ceiling settings:

  • Enable Clipping: Enables the Ceiling Red/Green/Blue controls.
  • Ceiling Red: Sets the maximum allowable chroma in the red channel. All values above this level will be set to this level.
  • Ceiling Green: Sets the maximum allowable chroma in the green channel. All values above this level will be set to this level.
  • Ceiling Blue: Sets the maximum allowable chroma in the blue channel. All values above this level will be set to this level.
