          That's a rather broad question.

           

          Are you asking about composition settings? Color depth? Other project settings? Color management settings? Memory preferences? Panels and workspaces? What are the details of your computer? How will you be receiving the files? How will you be delivering the files? What are you doing to the footage in After Effects?

            OK - I went and open AE CS5 and it says several options so I picked new composition
            here is a screen grab.

            And that took me to Compostion Settings where  I could not find 1.85:1 4k - There is one called 4k but after chosing it it appears to be acadmey 4k (I thnik 4:3 ratio)
            Here's a screen grab

            I opened photoshop cs5 to start a background that has to be 1.85:1 ratio 4k. And photoshop did not have the setting  for 1.85:1 4k. Then I said to myself ah that should be in AE CS% so I opened it and no 1.85:1 4k. So after seeing that AE CS5 did not have a pre-set for 1.85:1 4k I said you know I better find out how to set that comp up in After Effects cs5. Once I set up the comp in ae cs5 I want to bring the background from photoshop cs5 into ae cs5.
            So I would like to get ae cs5 this far - that is create a comp setting for 1.85:1 4k.

              If there's no composition settings preset for what you want to make, then just choose Custom and set the Width and Height values in the Composition Settings dialog box to the width and height of the frames that you'll be work with.

                Thank You  very much.

                 

                BTW do you know which is the prefered pixels for 1.85:1 4k. The refs seem to vary quite abit

                Celco has this

                and another ref has this

                 

                Digital Film Standards1.jpg

                 

                Celco gives super 1.85, standard 1.85 (offset 1), standard 1.85 (offset 5)

                the other gives

                Digital Cinema 4k

                Kinda confusing to me.

                  Ask whoever you're delivering the movie to what format and settings they expect from you, and go with that.

                      There's no specific standard.  As Todd says, always verify with the transfer company what their required file specs are.
