Error Code: 

Framing Error

Description:

"Framing Error" refers to the improper matting or scaling of the intended visual resolution & frame. 

Impact:

Framing Error impacts the Technical Quality of the asset. Customer experience will be adversely affected if the intended framing/ aspect ratio is altered or incorrect. Creative elements may be cropped out, and key story points may be lost as a result. . In some cases, this may be creative intent for the composition based on the context. 

Severity Structure:

FYI

Aspect ratio shift appears to be creative intent based on context (i.e. Documentary archival footage is side-matted or windowboxed).

Issue

Image zooms in/ out or shifts left/ right abruptly mid-shot or immediately before/ after a cut.  Frame has clearly been re-sized causing aliasing or a blurry image. Scaling/ framing and quality of image does not match similar surrounding shots.

How to Prevent:                          

Review any matting. Do not push in further than intended resolution when possible.

Ensure any scaling/ matting changes are applied cut to cut to avoid abrupt shifts mid-shot.

Shoot and finish at  higher native resolution than intended final delivery to allow for re-framing without compromising image quality.

Solution:

Affected shot must be corrected or replaced with a shot that matches the visual look of the content around it.

Archival footage should retain as much quality as possible, when appropriate.

If a shot scaling/ framing changes abruptly mid-shot, must be adjusted to have the change applied cut to cut.
