So I know that anything outside this cyan rectangle is likely to get lost in a digital projection. I don’t actually use the action safe very much, but you can turn it on and off at will. And there’s also a grid. If you need that you can turn on a 12 field grid, just enable that and choose an aspect ratio. You’re only choices are 4×3 or 12×9. I’ve got a wide aspect here, so I’ll do a 12×9 and click apply. And now we have a grid superimposed and that may be useful if you’ve got a camera movement and you need to track an object in screen space. Alright I’ll turn that back off again, and then click okay.
