Okay thanks, as far as delivery requirements go, I asked the person co-producing it with me and he said that since I know more about that than he does, he is leaving it up to me, but I've never done anything where I mixed aspect ratios before.

As far as duplicating it and blurring it goes, I think it will look very strange and the viewer will pick up on it looking off. It might work for a clear sky or something like that, but with footage of people in it, the people would be duplicated and blurred and it will look very weird I think.

You say don't pan and scan, but why not? Sure you loose some resolution, but then you are not switching to a 4:3 aspect ratio, so therefore, isn't panning and scanning better if you get to keep the same aspect ratio?

I watched some of Bowling for Columbine to compare, and Michael Moore, zoomed into the archival footage to match his interview footage, and he had no problem panning and scanning it seems, but is that bad?
