I have produced a short video in the 16:9 format and am trying to output it to a Quick Time movie file. Each time I render the file it dispays it in the 4:3 format. I have rendered the file at least 8 times this evening using various settings.
Premiere Pro CS3, Output 500 x280, H264 codec, 44,000 16Bit Stereo, Pixel Aspect set to Pal Widescreen 16:9 also tried the 720 x 576 aspect in the hope it would stretch out, but so far no luck.
Any ideas anyone

you haven't mentioned what quicktime codec you've tried to render to. I've experienced that DVCPRO is anamorphic, and therefore very difficult to change the format size to anything but 4:3. There is a way,but, it's rather detailed. If you're trying to use DVCPRO, can you render to another codec?

I thought H264 was a codec. I have had to resort to outputting the movie as a FLV this has kept the 16:9 ratio.

Just as a final note. I altered the settings within QuickTime Pro 7 player (Window > Show Movie Properties - Video Track - Visual Settings) I used the 853x480 setting and saved them (when you close the movie you are prompeted to save the settings). The file now plays in the 16:9 format.
I am sure that I should be able to render the file in the correct format from within the Adobe Media encoder, but for this project I have found a sollution.
Thank you for your help.
