why QT output at 1920 x 1080 ?

Just got my A1 and sofar really really excited. Took some time to get it to
capture HDV but got there.

My QT output files is displaying in 1920 x 1080 format. I have no clue why.

Can anyone tell/explain this?

Video settings in FCP:-

Sequence Preset 1080i50
Capture preset: HDV
Device control preset: HDV Firewire (is that the right one or shud it be
the 1080i50 fw basic?)

Sequence settings in FCP: frame size 1440 x 1080
aspect ratio HD (1440x1080) (16:9)

Pixel Aspect Ration: Anamorphic unticked
Field: Upper Domi

QT Video settings: HDV 1080i50 (at 100 pct).

Thank you for any thoughts.

The size of the pixels in HDV is 1.33 :1 so though you're shooting 1440 by 1080 the actual size is 1920 by 1080. that's why the quicktime output is that size.
