Aloha all!
I'm working on a video that illustrates how to evaluate exposure in a camera. I want to show examples of using histogram, zebra bars, waveform monitor, and false colors. For consistency's sake, I want to "fake" the content in Premiere, rather than gathering multiple cameras and/or monitors. The histogram and waveform monitor are built in to Lumetri scopes. I've got a LUT to emulate false colors.
How do I get Premiere to generate Zebra bars? Preferably monochrome ones, but I'll take what I can get. I know that in earlier versions, you could have "danger bars" as an overexposure warning, but I can't even find those anymore! (I'm using Version 14.2, or CC 2020).
Mahalo!

I don't know of any way to get 'zebra' in PrPro.

 

I'm wondering if it might be possible in AfterEffects. As almost everything is possible in Ae.

Yeah, I'm sure it's possible, but not being a proficient AE user, it seems like the hard way around.

My current train of thought involves drawing a diagonal stripe pattern in Illustrator or Photoshop, and trying various forms of key effect. Luma key seems like the obvious choice...

You could make a graphic of some stripes on V1 and add a luma key to your footage on V2.

I'm working on a proof of concept for that, but it's not so straightforward. Plus, zebras are animated, so that adds a level of involvement.
