    Rectangle vs square pixel math really.

    720x576 will be 4:3 on a 4:3 tv screen. To convert to 16:9 you can either add black bars, or stretch it and make it anamorphic -- either way you'll be cropping your frame.

    Unless you have this footage, and it is all squished - that means it is already in 16:9, but anamorphic, so will stretch back out when played on TV. SOrry if not making sense, is late here.
