Eporting VOB to 720 × 480, 16:9 - Failing to export to 16:9!

I am working with a DVD in which the VOB settings are as follows:

Stream: VTS_02_1.VOB
Path: /VIDEO_TS/VTS_02_1.VOB
Type: VOB program stream

Duration: 0:01:04
Data Size: 48.53 MB
Bit Rate: 6.31 Mbps

Video Tracks:
224 MPEG-2, 720 × 480, 16:9, 29.97 fps, 8.00 Mbps, lower field first

Audio Tracks:
128 AC3 2/0, 48 kHz, 192 kbps

Stream Files:
VTS_02_1.VOB (48.53 MB)


I am trying to export the VOB to an APR422 with a final resolution and aspect ratio of 720 × 480, 16:9, but every time I export the file, I get a final resolution and aspect ratio of 720 × 480, 3:2 - NOT 16:9!

Why is that, and more importantly, how can I get a final resolution and aspect ratio of 720 × 480, 16:9?

Other resolutions and aspect ratios that ARE acceptable are:

720 × 480, 4:3
704 × 480, 16:9
704 × 480, 4:3

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

720x480 is 4:3 only. Those dimensions are 4:3. There is no NTSC 4:3 ProRes format. NTSC video isn't 16:9. PAL is. There are anamorphic SD formats. But not 16:9.

Um, sorry to be contradictory, but you CAN create 16x9 NTSC DVDs. DVDSP can do it. The video resolution is still 720x480, but the pixel aspect ratio is something like 1.33 instead of 0.9 for 4x3 video.

Yeah, it's a kludge, but a common one. Alot of commercially-produced DVDs for Hollywood movies use the trick.

And so, for the original poster, create an anamorphic timeline in FCP, and the video clips from the DVD ought to be 16x9 when you put them in such a timeline.
