Part of the greatness of anamorphic is the dynamic compositions you can do with it. It makes it a little hard when you don't have the precise ground glass.

Where can I find a used anamorphic ground glass for an Arri BLIII? Called all over and no one has one. I could order one for an outrageous price. Otherwise I know I can get a silent aperature ground glass cheaper.

I guess I could put a piece of anamorphic print in the camera (from a movie trailer, lighting behind it with a flashlight) and mark the edges of the film frame on the ground glass while looking through the regular viewfinder or the desqueezer viewfinder.
What is the best way to mark the ground glass, -- with a sharpie?
Anybody got a real one to sell?

Thanks,
Steve Zimmerman

No, that doesn't work, I guess I have to shoot some film with it, put the negative back in the camera. Project the image back through the lens with a flashlight, trace the frame edges on the wall. Look through the viewfinder, mark the edges with pencil, then take out the glass and use a fine tipped permanent marker to mark the outline.
