My plan is a 16x9 screen, and I want to mask off the top of of the screen to make a 2.4:1 area on the bottom. I will use this 2.4:1 portion of the screen for a CIH setup, but when I want a really big 16x9 picture (like for IMAX, superbowl, or one of those movies like Interstellar that switches aspect ratio), I can remove the mask. Can the mini accommodate all this without optically zooming and shifting the lens on the projector?
I'm especially interested in having several presets, not just 16x9 and 2.35:1. Like several for the CIH setup with the mask down, I'd like to watch 16x9, 1.85:1, 2.0:1, 2.2:1, 2.35:1, 2.4:1. Can the mini save the the shrinking settings for all of these aspect ratios? I've watched some videos on youtube where the person switches back and forth between 16x9 and 2.35:1 with one button, but can other buttons (or memory slots) be assigned to these other aspect ratios?
