> but when I play the raw file in any media player it appears as 4:3 footage
That's because AVI does not really have a standard "16x9" flag. I believe the DV format as captured by Premiere does have a RIFF header that specifies this but most programs are not aware of it.
> I'm going to 3d track the footage with Boujou
I'm not familiar with the program, but perhaps it was a way of overriding PAR/DAR assumptions (such as Premiere or AE's "Interpret Footage")?
Also -- assuming you are going to render 3D animation at the same widescreen aspect -- does it really matter whether the motion tracking is aware that it's 16x9?
Normally you tell the player to adjust for widescreen playback. Most won't do this automatically.
So, could I export the video from Premiere Pro in .mov? (or any else format)
well, I tried that but no luck. the video is just 1:1 and black area to fill up to widescreen.
Can Boujou read MPEG-2? Try that. MPEG-2 should handle the PAR correctly.
isn't .mov MPEG-2?

It can be... but I'm talking about exporting from Adobe Media Encoder as proper native, widescreen MPEG-2 not QuickTime.
