Error Code:

Frame Error - Visible Matte Edge


Visible Matte Edge refers to an incomplete matte of an object layer that causes the image to leave the frame before reaching the active image edge. It is a technical error that negatively impacts the customer experience since on-screen objects are cut off and the shot is essentially incomplete.

Severity Structure:



Needs Review


Needs Fix

A character or object of focus is rendered out of the frame without on-screen motivation. Typically, the active image reaches the edge of the frame; however, the object does not. If edges are noticeable against other objects, it may be due to poor compositing.


Review and confirm if this is creative intent; otherwise, check the frame matte for the object and correct.
