If you shot with a DVX in non-squeeze mode, then you're image is 4:3.
...unless it was shot in Letterbox mode which is 4:3 letterboxed with a wide PAR
Bring the clips into a Premiere project, any project. Or, open them in Bridge. Check the properties of a clip. If it says the Pixel Aspect Ratio is .9, then the clip is 4:3 Letterbox. If it says PAR is 1.2, then the clip is 16:9 Anamorphic.
Depends a little on which model DVX camera you have. (They changed it between models )
From memory and I hope I am correct... on my DVX 102A PAL - setting camera to Letterbox Mode will actually change the PAR to 1.42
ie Normal is .9 NTSC and 1.067 PAL
Letterbox is 1.2 NTSC and 1.42 PAL
If the footage is brought into a std project the footage must be interpreted to what it is according to the properties (as Jim states).
