> I can not output media for broadcast with black bars on the edge(s)
The black bars will never show on SD broadcast. AFAIK, the new ATSC and ITU digital broadcasts are 704x576 (or 704x480) so the black bars will get cropped off anyway.
I assume you're converting HD material to SD when these bars appear?
No. My footage is 16:9 that I export as 16:9 to a variety of things - QT, wmv, avi etc...
The broadcast files are down converted as Full Height Anamorphic (SD FHA) but of course those with 16:9 correctly set-up, sets see the entire frame.
Good link and very helpful.
