“I’ve always had a terrible time with the team color – cardinal red. It
always seem to bleedinto everything else I put it next to.”
I hear you. Red can be a pain, bright red alone is asking for trouble. If you’re using Phoshop or AFX you might try a gradient mask and have red on one end and the team’s second color on the other. You’ll definitely want to bring down the saturation on the red (just don’t make it pink!) so it won’t bleed. Another thing is to select for NTSC safe colors. If your NLE has built-in scopes, you can check to see if your red signal is out of parameters and you can adjust it from there.
