I have produced several projects (upto 1hr 15min long each) , and in the Preview window they all exceed the boundary of the TV Safe Zone. These projects are made up from many video clips (e.g. 60+ each).

Is there a way of editing all clips at once so they all fit into the TV Safe Zone, as it is going to be very time consuming to manually edit each clip individually, so it fits within the TV Safe Zone, for each project)?

I thought I may be able to produce an MP4 video file from the project, then start a new project containing that single MP4 clip, then edit that file so it fits within the TV Safe Zone boundary, then produce that as the required video??????

Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that the TV safe zone was meant for the CRT tv made 20 years ago and users creating DVDs at that time to ensure that the titles they create will be seen on 90% of the consumer TV’s sold. Those TVs have severe overscan, or zoomed in images.that you do not see on a computer or a studio monitor.

Please state if you are seeing zoomed in video on your TV from the original source files and the produced files.

I have not produced a DVD/Blue-ray disc yet to see if there is an overscan problem. I will produce one and play it. If there is a problem, how do I edit the wholw video in one go so all the video clips are within the TV Safe Zone?
