Below is a cheat sheet for the resolution to use when exporting for various aspect ratios and frame sizes. Commonly used formats and sizes are highlighted in green.

Note: Many people refer to 2.35:1, 2.39:1 and 2.40:1 but these days they are usually all actually referencing the 2.39:1 aspect ratio. 2.35:1 was used in films prior to 1970 and 2.40:1 is an incorrect rounding from 2.39:1 to 2.40:1. Having said this, there are times when delivering at 2.40:1 is actually required rather than 2.39:1 - Bluray's spec for anamorphic/scope content is one example. As a result – all variants are included in this document.
The end message is that when it comes to anything between 2.35-2.44 I find it's best to just look at what the target destination is and run with what their predefined spec is (i.e. Blu-ray @ 1920x800, 2KDCP @ 2048x858, 4KDCP @ 4096x1716 etc.). It always pays to check what your destination is expecting to receive from you rather than trying to convince them you have it the right way round!

Resolution/Aspect Ratio Cheat Sheet v1.6

Pal was analog, so there was a difference between active and total lines, unlike digital standards where they are the same. So its hsould read 525P, like 480P is the NTSC match in digital/streaming formats.

Secondly 8K UHD(TV) from the start has been 7680 x 4320, I should still have a hand-out from NHK, in the attic, from when it brought the Super Hi-Vision system out to the world, with 'UHDTV being the name for outside Japan', paraphrasing here as it has been 11 years since;-).
