    Hi everyone,
    Frame guides helps me a lot, especially when shooting slow-me in high speed in WS for a 16:9 output.
    I have an upcoming job where I will have to quickly extract content to post in instastories but I still need to edit a final 16:9 piece when production will be done.
    My main idea was a 9:16 frame guide on screen to be sure the shots needed are well centered but Im really struggling with setting up a 16:9 window in the frame guide menu.
    Any recommendation or advice regarding this please?

    You can do frame guides with custom settings

    I probably didn’t express myself the right way. I can’t find the custom settings to create a 9:16 frame guide.

    If you are doing only 9:16 then apart from using custom settings, I'd recommend fliping your camera 90degrees. That way I'll end up cropping less from the sensor. Ideally go 8kHD, 7kHD,6kHD etc. and flip camera 90degrees and you'll end up with 9:16, and use the the sensor more effectively.

    Pawel,
    As I mentioned in my first post, I also need to edit 16:9 content and this has priority.
