    I know I've had it happen a couple times when I ignored the safe areas and made it fill the screen, then when I watched on my tv parts of it were cut off. I guess it just depends on which medium you intend to watch your video on.

    Remember, the term 'title safe' is just that. If you are posting to the web then I guess you can ignore it. If you want to watch on a TV then you better be aware of them.

    the point is they are guidelines. You stick to them or ignore them at your own discretion.

    CRT TVs have overscan. This means that some of the picture will be cut off when viewed on most TVs. Some TVs will cut off more than others. Do you need to worry about this? Well, it's called 'title safe' because any graphics you display on the screen may be cut off. So place graphics within the safe area to ensure viewers can read the text!

    Other than that, you can ignore it. Cerainly don't resize your video to fit the safe area! Besides, graphics look wierd when placed right at the edge, so it's best from a aesthetic point of view anyway!
