Displaying the Grid


Using a grid is useful when positioning or drawing objects and characters in a scene. Several different kinds of these grids and their grid options can be displayed in the Stage or Camera views.

A grid can also be useful for creating balanced compositions for all your shots. By default, the Proportion Grid is divided into 3 vertical and 3 horizontal sections to create the classic rule of thirds composition grid. It can be used independently in either the Stage or Camera views and follows the Camera frame. Its divisions can be customized in the Camera tab of the Preferences dialog—see Camera Preferences.
