Does anyone know the best way to make 1:2.35 markings on a IIC ground glas? I have one with 1.85 markings and TV-safe on it.

thanks

This question assumes that you want to frame 2.35 using the centre of the film (Techniscope format) rather than shoot with anamorphic lenses. If you were using anamorphic lenses you would have no need for frame lines because you would use the full height of the gate/ground glass. Of course you must have a 'scope' gate and a 'scope' ground glass.

But if you just want to frame your shots within the academy frame (Techniscope format) you can draw the top and bottom lines using a steady hand and an 8H pencil.

The height that you need is 9.40MM. The width is the same as the 1.85:1 markings
