I know when you render and burn a project to dvd you lose some information along the sides which is the reason for tv safe lines. On a recent shoot the stupid-a** DP (aka me) cut things a little close and I don't want to lose much information along the sides. I was planning on scaling the image in FCP or Color to tv safe lines or at least the point where the image gets cut off, but I was wondering if this is going to greatly negatively effect the resolution or image quality. Is this how you guys would do it or am I going about this the wrong way?
