Don't use QuiRcktime. Use MS DV AVI or anything BUT QuiRcktime. It has deserved this name for a reason, well several reasons. People tend to avoid the plague. They should do the same with QuiRcktime.

There are a number of ways of sorting your issue.
In your case easiest way is maybe:
Dont use a DV Codec because it has a fixed aspect ratio.
Try H264 for example with square pixel output.
You may have to adjust the vertical dimensions of the movie.
Do that by unlocking the dimesions from each other then adjust the vert dimension while watching in the OUTPUT TAB of Media Encoder.
example - I have built a QT preset for small preview movies from 1080p source footage and the dimensions are 680 x380 square pixels. This is guaranteed to open correctly in my clients displays.
Sure! I mostly render in H.264, myself.
But the sound mix guy specifically requires a .mov file, apparently. As my friend's trouble is mine as well (it's a project we're both working on), I'm invested in figuring a way to make this wonky format come out in the aspect ratio I'm telling it to.
Thats what I am saying.
Give him a .mov using H264 codec.
Sorting the PAR wonky ness is easy as I advised but there are other ways.
Export at 854x480 using a 1.0 PAR and you will get the correct 16:9 aspect on playback. Most media players assume square pixels and therefore do not correctly display anamorphic widescreen video. As mentioned, skip the QuickTime and go H.264
