is there an Avid project setting for NTSC DV/DVCPRO 720 x480?

I am trying to create a new Avid project in version 6.5.2 with settings of NTSC DV/DVCPRO 720x480. I don't get very far after inputting 30i NTSC. I can then select 4:3 but the raster reads 720 x 486 which is NTSC D1 and it's greyed out...I can't change it to 480. I'm trying to accommodate the native settings of several pre-existing Quicktime movies I will be importing (720 x 480) and transcoding to DV 24 411 MXF.

Is there any project setting available to me that will do this? Or should I just accept it as is...and make the scaling correction when I export a Quicktime reference movie for a standard def DVD? This is not for broadcast...it's classroom use with students, etc.

Thanks for any advice that can be offered.

John

Avid makes it conform to 720x486, but it adds a top black bar. Avid can import and ingest native 720x480, but it forces it to conform to 720x480 in the project. You can go under the project settings and modify the Raster setting.
