No (manual) Meter display in Video mode?

Hi, I'm going to be shooting a commercial video with my Z7 and Z7II and I'd like to use manual mode for my metering. Is there a way to display the exposure meter when shooting video in manual?

My problem is that I am have a really hard time gauging the exposure through the VND filter and I'm not happy with the values I get using a gray card. To date I've been using the 'stills' shooting mode to establish exposure and then switching to video but this is cumbersome at best and doesn't help if there's a 'real' exposure variation during shooting.

Any enlightenment on this topic would be fantastic.

Thank you.
