I've been fooling around with the Title-Mix and was wondering how do I create the black bars for different aspect ratios in Photoshop? Specifically 2.35:1 and 1.85:1. I know I have to crop a portion of the top and bottom of the frame but I'm not exactly sure how much for each aspect ratio. Anyone know how to accomplish this?

See my Letterbox Calculator ( to calculate your own masks
or download my pre-made models. They should work fine for your
GL2 title-mix function although they are probably slightly off from
the builtin 16:9 mask due to calculation differences.

I've been using the 16:9 mask on my XM2 for a while and think that it's a great facility.
My only complaint is that the black isn't completely black. Sometimes there's more black in the picture content than the bars.
