preset for documentary: what if I change to automatic shooting?

hi,

I am looking for a preset for documentary use. its maybe going to be blown up to bigscreen so I guess I need a Cine gamma 2 setting?
but what happens if I shoot with a preset in manual mode and suddenly wanne change to full automatic in rushed and difficult situations? do I loose the preset or not?

thanks

No, the preset stays. just the white balance, focus, gain, iris, etc. goes automatic which will change the look somewhat.
