It was a consideration for my next design. I'm not 'digging a hole', I've already said I've accepted the comments. It might help if you actually read my posts before having a go? I've 'moaned' at one person because of their completely unhelpful and useless comment. I haven't moaned at anybody that's given constructive criticism Rolling Eyes .

Have you got a 16:9 TV? Because I'm pretty sure at least 85% (if not more) of the country does. Sky News only broadcasts in 16:9 as well, it's not a huge deal.

Keep the clock in 16:9, I agree. Unfortunately, some viewers are moronic (as seen on Twitter) However, still keep the graphics within the 16:9 safe area as flatscreens *can* cut off as much as 10%.

The thing with breakfast TV is that while many people have a widescreen TV, many also only have a little 4:3 set in the kitchen or whatever, so these types of programme constantly get complaints from people not being able to see the clock properly.

The 14:9 safe area (not shown on that template) is probably as good as you can get these days and still be acceptable by the majority of viewers.

[And yes, it is important, even if it's in a mock, because if your clock has to be in an annoying location that compromises your design, you have to find a way around it for the mock to be any good]
It's spelt COVFEFE!

Initial thoughts please? There are transitions, but I wanted to show you a screenshot before I make the video. Ditched the clock, everything should be in 4:3 safe now.

This design is loosely based off GMA, but even still, I think it's different and not just a vanity project like my other work.

A lot better and much more colourful!

On keynote, use 'Move In' with bounce off from the left instead if you are still planning to use the wipe effect
