Just like with film camera, but picture is instant.
OK now I see. We used to do it that way with telephoto lenses on Mitchell cameras when I worked in Nevada. There was no focusing mount, just shims. We put in a shim, shot a couple of feet of film, put another shim, etc. Then back to the trailer to soup the film, check it with a loup. Been there, done that; but I didn't see that was what you meant.
May the light be with you.
