Recently, I wrote an article about Range Checking, and today I want to continue on that topic, but take it one step further.  Using the Broadcast Safe Filter.  The Broadcast Safe Filter will give you the quickest way to reduce the luma & chroma levels within your clip that might go over the legal broadcast limits.

In your Viewer window, click on the Filters Tab, and drag the Broadcast Safe filter from your Effects Tab into the Viewer window.  Now you can see the parameters in which to set your luma & chroma levels.

Note that using motion parameters, transitions, and compositing modes can change the results of the Broadcast Safe filter applied to individual clips.  Sometimes it's best to create a nested sequence and then apply the Broadcast Safe filter to the Nest.
