Re: Film safe action/title

Hmmm....  Maybe my question wasn't clear.  I'll try again....

I you were the guy doing titles to be recorded out to film.  Where would you
go to find out how far from the edges your text would have to be to ensure
nothing is cutoff during projection?  Are there a set of standards that
address this or is it more of an empirical thing arrived at over the years?

In other words, this is a film question and it has little to do with TV.  I
just used TV terminology because we all understand it.   My guess is that if
you avoided the outer 5% of the frame you'd be OK.  I can't see theaters and
screening rooms cutting off 10% of the image vertically and
horizontally..... at the same time I know that films are not projected edge
to edge, right?
