1440x1080 in 1920x1080 ?

I'm working on a project with raster dimension of 1920x1080.
This project includes source of miniDV cassettes filmed on HDV 1440x1080 .I'm trying to find a way to digitize this source, but so far without much success. Any way around?
MC5.0.4.4
Thanks, Avi

HDV can be captured via firewire, just use a 1440x1080 project. THen bring the bin into a 1920x1080 project. It'll stretch to fill the frame. 1440 is anamorphic.

What do you have at your disposal to capture? Nitris? Mojo? Third party? Deck and Firewire?

Thanks so much Shane
How come I didn't think about it....da
As for the Nitris and the Mojo, I have non of them, I used the Mojo before as a support for my old Mac. For some reason that I'm not sure why,the 2x2.4 GHz quad-Core Intel Xeon, is strong enough to do the job(?).

Then you capture via firewire. Just make sure you are in a 1440x1080 project, and you set the deck up correctly to capture via firewire.

I just did it as you told me,I imported the 1440x1080 via OPEN BIN to the 1920x1080 project.
It worked perfect, but I find it a bit strange, since the image looks the same.(?)

The other strange thing happened when I switched back to the 1440x1080 project.
I was trying to digitize more footage via the firewire when an Avid note came on screen:
"Exeption: Operation not supported, filename:/My Passport/Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1/Criating/creating 14"
what I understand in this message is only the file name, the external SES drive name; My Passport.

[Avi Lev] "I imported the 1440x1080 via OPEN BIN to the 1920x1080 project.

I typically copy the bin on the Desktop level...so it is in the project.
As for why it looks the same, it's because anamorphic footage is designed to be unsqueezed when added to a timeline. It's anamorphic to conserve the data rate. Many cameras shoot anamorphic formats.

Not sure about that error...

Thanks, I'll keep on digging, and let you know as soon as I'll find some answer.

I believe the Avid note "operation not supported...." refer to some conflict with the MY Passport drive,:
http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=640
The note doesn't come off unless you eject the drive completely

Again,it happened in capturing mode
