873x480 ARG! - Anyone know how to set Conform Aperture for a batch of files?

Exporting files from FCP using QT Conversion to make DV files nicely sets the Conform Aperture property to Clean so the output files display properly at 853x480.

No matter what I try, running the files through Compressor using DV Anamorphic and Watermarking them results in the Conform Aperture properties setting to be changed from Clean to Production. This results in the file being incorrectly displayed at 873x480 instead of 853x480. I cannot find a way to control this in Compressor.

I've searched around but can't find an Applescript or utility to that lets me set the value in bulk. Anamorphicizer returns an error (attached) and I can't get Automator to do it.

Does anyone know of a way to set the Conform Aperture setting to Clean for a batch of files?

Alternatively, what about watermarking without the setting being clobbered?

TIA
