Customize on page layout for 'new' record

It appears that 'most' of the options available for customizing page layout, only affects the 'edit' page layout and not the 'new' record page layout.
I am looking at customizing page layout while creating 'new' record.

I want to have some field as 'read only' and some fields not visible in new record page layout (just like formula field)
a. Do I have to go with creating new VF page?
b. Is there any other way in Salesforce?

Hi Rahul,
I had already gone through the answers / idea sent through the links.
Infact, when we are about to post a question, this forum provides you similar questions which was already posted earlier.
I want to know whether there is any option available now!!

You can create a lightining page, and use the "Set Componet Visiblity" filter on to extend the customization. I hide all fields until the required fields are entered.

You can currently do this with Dynamic Forms (Only on custom objects)


Component Visibility by Created By (any field) = Blank


This will make the section visible before creation and hide it afterwards.
