FCPX' included Title/ActionSafe viewer set handles different aspect-ratios… shouldn't be no problem to add that to your version … ?
And, maybe I'm wrong, but isn't TitleSafe an obsolete relict from the analogue, 'tube' days? … yep, perhaps some never-revised broadcast specs ask for it, but in days of YouTube, Instagram et al…
just sayin' …
Title Safe is not obsolete. Modern TVs are not edge to edge. And every experienced graphic designer uses them because it helps make for more readable, attractive titles in graphics. They're mandatory in many TV stations still for very good reasons.
The baked in FCPX option for displaying Title/Action Safe adapts to the frame size/aspect ratio of the underlying project. I built this using fixed PNG's with transparent backgrounds. The image files wouldn't scale properly over anything other than 1.78:1 assets.
As far as obsolescence - someone on another forum asked about color options. So I built this. As FCPX.guru stated - usage is still vital.
Actually I'm still tweaking it. I included a clip opacity option. It allows the user to darken the clip/sequence when the overlay(s) are active. I realized if the user adjusts the opacity, and subsequentally hides the overlay - the opacity adjustment remains static. That's problematic. I'll fix when I have time and post.

I will second this! I have worked with nearly all of the local broadcast stations here as well as with the regional cable companies. I use safe zones all the time. The more polished broadcast stations will flag it if text isn't conformed to this, but many of the local broadcasters will let it go, and the result is missing text cut off on your well intentioned TV commercial. Happened only once to me when the station center cut a 720p commercial conforming to 16:9 safe zones. Now they all seem to respect that aspect. Small town broadcasters...Aaaarrrgghhh !
