I am having some pretty extreme issues with aspect ratios. Can someone tell me why DV has a different aspect ratio than regular NTSC and how do you deal with this when making videos for TV with a DV cam? i.e. 3:2 vs 4:3. -- 720x480 640x480 -- What is the meaning of this?
Furthermore, does DV have a special aspect ratio for 16:9?
Because DV works with a different pixel aspect ratio. This is really basic stuff and is readily available with a web search. NTSC is not 640x480 BTW. It's 720x486 and uses the same pixel aspect as DV. Yes, anamorphic uses a different aspect aspect ratio as well.
All the best,
