How to fake 16:9 with 4:3 footage

I made a mistake and recorded one camera (not alot thank god) in 4:3. The project it is for is all 16:9, so how can I cheat and blow up the 4:3 and crop it so when rendered out it has the same black bars as the 16:9 footage? I remember there may have been a template for that somewhere?

Just blow up your 4:3 footage so that it fills the frame width wize(I blow it up to 134% in PP2.0). Click this link and save the image to your Hard Drive. Then drop the .png file into your timeline above the 4:3 footage and your good to go.

The matte should be 720x480. Did you just save the thumbnail? You need to click the thumbnail and save the full size image.
