Filming with Sony HDV camera. Should I set project settings to 16:9 aspect ratio when creating project in PPro when the end result is to be burned onto regular old (non-BluRay) DVD?
Will the DVD look better if project setting is 4:3, even though the DVD will be played on widescreen TV?
If the camera is set to record anamorphic widescreen (meaning a Pixel Aspect Ratio of 1.2 for DV and 1.3 for HDV, as opposed to just adding black bars), then choose a widescreen preset in Premiere for editing.
If the camera is set to record 4:3, with or without black bars, then choose a regular preset for editing.
Your HDV camera is probably shooting HDV, therefore the best way to edit is to edit 16:9 (1.333) and export SD Widescreen 16:9 (1.2)
