Framing Guides / Grid Overlays - with a toggle ON/OFF feature
Would it be possible to add a simple GRID overlay that you can toggle ON/OFF. For iClone it will help a lot with accurate composition and camera positions and framing sequences.

For example:

Rule of Thirds
Action and Title safety with a center target cross hair for each project/render output format

Thank you.

Hi Joanne,

The grids are used for framing shots both for photography composition and film composition.  Normally when you are shooting with a film camera or stills camera there is a toggle on/off grid option to help with framing your composition.  Title/Action Safety areas and Rule of Thirds.  Title/Action Safety for different filming formats like 235:1, 185:1, 16:9, 4:3 and so on.

Here are some links that explain further.

Hi,
Could you please add more description about this:
"Rule of Thirds
Action and Title safety with a center target cross hair for each project/render output format"

Do you mean the safe frames in a camera view? like this?
