If you are produce for cinemas you need to get the specifications from them. AE's presets are standard frame sizes, but your Director may be envisioning a different frame aspect ratio. There's a lot to learn here but the only way to know for sure is to ask the folks that are going to arrange distribution for their exact specifications. Expect specs for Frame Size, audio, color levels... There is a lot more to making a film for cinema distribution than just picking a frame size.
Yes I guess there are different settings. In this case it´s just a short film that I will direct and animate myself that will be shown on a smaller cinema. I guess I will have to make a test and see how that works.
At the moment I was just trying to get the basic frame settings right. I think the other things can se adjusted later.
The folks that run the theater should know what the settings are and who makes their projector. This information is really easy to find out, you just have to ask.
