Frames are full screen graphics that sit around the outside of live footage on the big screen.


If your frame is a static image, supply a .png with alpha where the vision will come through. If your frame is animated, supply an .mp4 with solid magenta (#FF00FF) or solid green (#00FF00). Choose whichever colour is most different to your frame graphics.


Consider how your frame will be used and which areas of the screen you might be covering up. For example don’t cover up an area of the frame that is likely to feature people’s heads if it is for an interview segment.  


.tga sequences will need to be put in .zip files to be uploaded to Drop.

When creating frames you should aim to not cover too much of the big screen vision. We recommend taking up no more than 220 pixels from the height or width of the screen.

Transitions (sometimes called RTDs) are quick one second animations that play before or after a replay. When creating transitions, the first and last frames should be completely blank (full alpha), and the middle frame (frame 13) content should completely fill the frame.

Bugs are small graphics in the corner of the frame, usually at the bottom.
Bugs run on the big screen after a transition. When designing your bug, consider it is going to be played over footage, so you should attempt to differentiate it from the background. This could be with a drop shadow or a small shape.
Bugs can include: Brand logo, tagline or reference to which moment it is being played over (eg. “4” if it is for a 4).
