Lots of video editors offer a "Cinematic Settings" option before rendering. Perhaps this is what he was referring too.
I for one just like the way I took my video with out all the bells and whistles from editors but thats just me you might be different
The settings were all done in camera. No post editing except mild color correction.
The settings I used to follow the cine settings I have been trained in (and this is just my experience) is 24 frames/sec with shutter speed locked in at 1/50. This meant I needed a 4 stop filter. It gives a more smooth motion with the cinematic blur I like.
