Garbage In Garbage Out

Garbage In .jpg

We are all familiar with the phrase garbage in, garbage out, well, it also holds true for the graphics that you are creating for use on television! Your image can look like a crown jewel in a graphics program such as Photoshop and look like chop liver on a video monitor. When working within DVD Studio Pro, be mindful of how you create menus and overlays:

Here are some tips:

- Red is an extremely touchy color to use in video due to bleeding, try to stay away from colors that are instensely saturated. If you must use shades of red and blue, be extremely careful. Reproduction of these colors is usually not very good.

- Use text that is larger than 18 points.

- Keep primary colors (red, green, and blue) to a value of 235 or lower for the sake of older television sets.

- Create overlays with clearly defined edges.
