Getting Squeezed Video From 1440x1080 Timeline

Hey Everyone, this is my first post. Glad to join in.

So I am working on my film project for school, and I have a 1440x1080 timeline that I've nested other sequences into to compile the whole film. The sequences I have going in are mostly 1440 themselves, but a few are different asp. rat.'s, like 1920x1080 & 960x720. It all plays fine on the 1440 nested sequence on FCP 6, which is what I'm using. But on export to either ProRes or even H.264, it squeezes the vid into this 4:3 frame. Looking at the file on my Mac, it says the asp. rat. is indeed 1440x1080. But it's mos def not 16:9.

I've also tried exporting this same timeline as a 1920x1080, ProRes file. Still the same results. I even test-exported certain chunks of the video to see if it would export. Those chunks did, but as a whole I keep getting squeezed. I've even used both Compressor & FCP to export. Any thoughts? HELP!!

When mixing footage and ratios, it's always best to use a ProRes sequence, full raster 1920x1080...not thin raster (anamorphic) 1440x1080.

Now, when exporting, make sure that you choose the dimensions 1920x1080, and SQUARE pixels....that should make it full frame.
