A requirement has been identified for some agencies to have a 2 to 4 frame gap between titles. The gap triggers the viewer to look down and read the next subtitle. Without gaps between titles, it is sometimes difficult to identify when the title is changing, especially when they are formatted similarly. The BBC demands a 3-frame gap in their specification, however anything between 2 to 4 frames is acceptable.
