I can't help with the problem, but I am curious why you're attempting it.
It is the best method of getting my HDV video to appear the same size as my DV video in a widescreen DV timeline. I can do thinks like zooming in or changing the timeline aspect ratio to 1.333 but even then I have to change the PAR on both video for it to match and it changes the HDV a good amount. If i could just get this method to work it would be so easy. I don't understand why it is so hard to just make a custom pixel aspect ratio. It should be an easy thing to do.
Changing to an unusual PAR will probably give you an error when trying to export.
When you have finished editing your footage you can nest your timeline in a new timeline and scale it up to 103% after setting scale to framesize. Or scale it down t0 55% with no scale to framesize on.
You can also edit in hdv mode and crop off 14 pixel of top and bottom in the export settings when delivering to dvd-mpeg.
Regardless of why I am doing it, the function does not work. This should be brought to the attention of Adobe. It should create a new aspect ratio and it does not. It says it will generate a new one in the UI but it does not appear. Maybe I am doing it wrong, or maybe Adobes software is just lying to me.
