Aspect Ratio question

I know that thi may seem to be a very novice question but please bear with me. I am wondering as to how to find out what aspect ratio my video is rendered in. I know this may seem novice but I have no idea. Please help. Thanks.

With most formats you cannot tell in what PA (Pixel Aspect) it is
in. However you can make some assumptions. Most analog
capture cards seem to capture in 1.0 aspect radio.

DV NTSC is 0.9 (or 0.9091 in Vegas)
DV PAL is 1.067 (or 1.0926 in Vegas)

If you can tell us a bit more on the footage and where it came
from we might be able to tell you. Usually you can also "eye-ball"
it to see what looks correct or not.

It was recorded on a Sony TRV87 and edited with cheap consumer software. The video is posted on here. If you wanted to take a look at it and tell me that would be great. The heading under DV for the masses is, "Thinking of submitting to festival, could use some input." or something to that degree. Also if you could leave your comments I would greatly appreciate. The post may be a couple days old but no more than 5. Thanks again.

I can't take a look for at least 4 days since I will be at the IBC
convention. Shoot me an e-mail at visuar@iname.com
