Since I am using these exported files to make web encodings, do I set the pixel aspect ratio to 1.0 Square or do I keep it at the 1.333 HD Anamorphic? I never understood that. Thanks so much for your help and guidance guys.
Just select the HDV preset that matches the HDV aquisition format that your camera uses, it shoudl be 1.333 anamorphic 1440x1080 for 1080i hdv. I am unsure what the preset is if you own a 720p hdv camera
