You need to click the "anamorphic" switch for each footage item within FCP, so FCP knows the clip is widescreen.
I think Ive worked it out!
I was doing what you suggested but it wasent working so I went back to after effects.
in the out put module settings theres a button called lock aspect ratio 5:4 (1.25) if I select this it works. its under stretch
if you create comps in AE with D1/DV-PAL Widescreen (locked 5:4) you don`t have to worry about nothing on render output. using the PAR correction Toggle is your friend when previewing, don't worry about the poor resolution whenever toggling PAR, it's just an still untested development fraud to get rid of it.
oh, sure, there was something: interpereting the footage before you start compositing in AE.
thanks for your reply!
what is PAR?
Pixel Aspect Ratio Correction
there's a big part about PAR in the Adobe Live Docs.
> what is PAR?
Pixel aspect ratio (PAR) is the ratio of width to height of one pixel in an image.
For more information, see the "Pixel aspect ratio and frame aspect ratio" section of After Effects Help on the Web.
