You can go into the Red Camera Menu #9 and select “Shooting Info. Display”.  You can set up the shooting displays to provide both the level and historgram, if you so wish.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work when you press the video recording button, everything disappears

This is how the camera works. You might want to make use of the Zebra or false colour filter to monitor exposure while capturing movies, But there is no solution for the electronic level display.

It's a pity there is no such function...I think it's not difficult for engineers to add it to the firmware. Because personally, it helps me a lot when shooting video.

I would not assume that features can always be added through firmware updates, most especially updates that would consume CPU processing time.

For example, would you rather have oversampled 4K video at 60 fps and no histogram,  or a 4K video at 30 fps with a histogram?
