Thanks everyone!

I've always under exposed after watching many post processing tutorials on YouTube but I've always felt there was so much noise and I wasnt doing something right

With ETTR, are you aiming to get the histogram peaks closer to the right than them being central before the whites start clipping then

You might like to read this by DPReview. It talks about RAW exposure on theSony A7Riii and how to set up zebra for ETTR. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-a7r-mark-iii-review/4/

There is also a bit of a thread about it here https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60822051

You can also just set your Zerba's to 108+ to get a similar result.

What jpeg settings should be used when using the zebras?

Use Zebra only if you shoot raw, since jpg + raw doesn't match when "exposing to the right

But even when shooting raw the live preview is based on the jpeg settings (creative style) isn't it? If so, then don't we need to set those settings a certain way to allow the zebras to be as accurate as possible?

With zebra +108 you can trust the pattern with raw. I have used this as my exposure meter for raw files for some years now, with very consistent results.
