Question about resolution and aspect ratio

Why does FCP, in the sequence settings, list "HD (1440x1080)" as being 16:9 when that ratio is actually 4:3. Help a confused kid out here. Thanks!

1440x1080 is 1920 x 1080. When a 1440 x 1080 clip comes into an editing application it stretches the image to 1920 x 1080. It is the same idea behind anamorphic. When you shot a 4:3 image it looked stretched. When you bring it into FCP and check Anamorphic it would squash it down to 16:9. Hope this "in a nutshell" answer helps and best of luck.

Otherwise known as a "thin-raster" format, where as 1920X1080 is "full raster"

1440x1080 is based on HD Pixels which are not squared.
The aspect (proportions, frame) of a 1440x1080 HD picture is exactly the same of a 1920x1080 SQ Pixels.
Both are 16x9.
