F_drawgrid
 
Draws a colored grid on the input video. Through the settings you can select the horizontal and the vertical offset, set the width and height of the grid cell, and the color and thickness of the lines. When using the Presets button on the plugin bar on the timeline, you can choose a preset of rule_of_thirds. The Rule of Thirds is a 3×3 grid on top of an image which is commonly used in filmmaking. The concept is that you align the key elements in the image using this grid at the intersection of the lines or along and within the vertical/horizontal lines. In general the bottom and right sides of the video will not be bordered by the grid. So for example, if you only add the effect to the video, there will be a frame around the video with the size of the thickness but the frame is only visible on the top and left and not on the bottom or left side. You can get a line to show by using a larger thickness and specifying a negative value for x and y of -2, -3, or more.
