Press the D-KEY with your mouse over the 3D view and you will bring up the Display options. Under the Guides tab there are a few overlay options such Video Safe Area and Field guide.

Hi,

Just select image with alpha of your rule of thirds in Viewer Foreground field in camera View.



Like this:
45% grid visibility: https://shura.studio/c/houdini/media/RuleOfThirds-45p.tif
100% grid visibility: https://shura.studio/c/houdini/media/RuleOfThirds-100p.tif

back to an oldy, but why isn't houdini taking the alpha mask? It's white instead of transparent
