Design With RGB or 601 Levels?

In their current versions, Adobe video applications correctly interpret RGB values (using the full 0-255 range). This will make it easier during the design process. Adobe Premiere Pro will properly map a 0 value to 7.5 IRE and a 255 value to 100 IRE. In Adobe After Effects, you design using the full color range, and color remapping will generally occur when the codec is applied in the Output Module.

For most users, the best practice is to design in full gamut RGB and apply the NTSC-safe filter on the file in Premiere Pro. This method ensures that all graphics are processed, but will cause the now-filtered graphic to be rendered when a properly prepared Photoshop document would not.
