Simple question, as the title states. Is there a way to get a grid overlay of the Rule of Thirds in the 3D view when setting up rendering angles?
Not that I'm aware of. I just eyeball it.

For exterior renders I use camera angle 54°, set the camera about 1.7 m above the terrain, point it slightly up ussually to get the building in frame and then switch to 2-point perspective.

For the rule of thirds I try to have the entrance or some other interesting part about about 1/3 or 2/3 of the frame or I use some frill (birds, people, etc) to draw attention where I want.
