Letterbox / output blanking

I'd like to suggest a new feature that allows users to use output blanking into both the timeline monitor and source monitor. This feature would be particularly useful for those working on 16:9 projects and timelines and with a blackmagic playback, enabling them to seamlessly add (for exemple) a 2.39 aspect ratio letterbox overlay to both monitors. Additionally, enhancing user control, it would be beneficial to have the ability to adjust the opacity of the overlay for added flexibility.

You can create a simple mask in Photoshop that can be added to your sequence on a higher video track to make this work for sequence. Similarly Red Giant Universe comes with a tool called Socialise which can be used on the Twitter 2.39:1 preset to add guides to show you the region of interest.

 

The source side would be a different story as the window is filled by whatever the source image dimensions are. For example if you load a 512x512 image it is a square image that fills the frame, so you would need a scalable viewer with a scalable mask.
