I think that I figured out why I am getting the black border. Apparently, QT is expecting 720x486 when you use their AppleDV-DVCpro codec. I changed to output to 720x486 and the black is gone.
But why does the video look so bad when played from QT?
My requirements are for 720x480 .mov files. But I imported my prproj file into AE CS3 and exported the clips using AE's export to QT at 720x480 and there are no black outlines. But the resulting .mov files still looked "highly compressed" and "washed out" when played back on my desktop QT player. But inside of AE or PPro, they look fine.
So I think that there is a bug in CS3 in exporting to QT with DV-DVCPro and 720-480 footage and that there is something quirky with my QT player(s).
