Aspect Ratio Problem When Onlining

Hi,
I checked the old posts and couldn't find an answer.

I'm using Ken Stone's article to online my project. I followed the instructions except for the point right after the new online file is created and just before you capture footage. He says to change the Audio/Video Settings to go from Capture Preset (DV to OfflineRE NTSC (Photo JPEG) to DV NTSC 48 kHz). I did that. I also changed the Sequence Preset (which wasn't mentioned in the article) from Offline RT NTSC (Photo JPEG) to DV NTSC 48 kHz.

When I captured the full-res footage, the clips were squeezed to look more widescreen. The image hadn't been cropped, just stretched.

These are the sequence settings for my offline project:
Frame Size: 320x240 Multimedia Large (4:3)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square - (Anamorphic 16:9 box not checked.)
Field Dominance: none
Editing Timebase: 29.97
Quicktime video Settings
Compressor: Photo - JPEG
Quality: 35%


These are the sequence settings for my online project:
Frame Size: 720x480 NTSC DV (3:2)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: NTSC- CCIR 610/DV(720x280)- (Anamorphic 16:9 box not checked.)
Field Dominance: Lower (even)
Editing Timebase: 29.97
Quicktime video Settings
Compressor: DV/DVCPRO - NTSC
Quality: 100%

I filmed the original footage on miniDV (NTSC) with a Canon GL2 3CCD camera. The footage was onlined with a Sony DCR-HC32 1CCD miniDV (NTSC) camera. I'm using FCP 5.0.4 on an apple powerbook g4. OS 10.4.8

I'm sure the solution is something small that I'm missing. Thanks a lot for any help!

I've seen odd aspects at times. (Without doing online-offline for DV) The solution has been to choose the clip and either "Remove atributes" or doing a change in the zooming in the motiontab.

Just 2 very cheapo cents...
