Go “Old School”, run a tape measure & get marks?
 
Steven i’m not taking about methodology, i’m Talking about an specific monitor and it’s adjusments. But since you asked, yes, I still run a tape, a laser, mark the actors, the dolly and get space references across the set, but I also use a cinetape in some cases and a monitor to quick check focus in some positions, mostly on wide open long telephotos when not having DoF for both eyes can ruin a take if you try to do it only by judging measures by eye or when even the cinetape isn’t useful; or to quick check a finished shot if in doubt of the focus. I use the monitor as another tool like thousands of asistants in a world where the sensors are becoming larger than monitor screens itself, and even Preston Light Ranger is a tool to exclusively use looking at a monitor. 

Best regards.
