    Exporting 480 SD footage at 4:3 PAR still chops off some video on the side when watched on HDTV

      I burned a DVD and checked it on my widescreen tv. There is still a bit of video on the side that is being chopped off even with 4:3 footage showing on widescreen with the black bars on the side. I realized that basically if I export it as square pixels and not 4:3 that it then fits perfectly because it brings the left and right sides of the image in to basically right around the action safe line.. So is this supposed to happen? Is this a "duh" moment for me? Like the name says, I'm somewhat of a noob at this. Should I always be exporting at square pixels?
