We are shooting some title/credit sequences. We were asked by the director to shoot in this format: Panasonic DVCPro HD, 1920 x 1080 25p, PAL

THe camera we are using is a Canon 5D Mark II. Shooting at 24fps (the camera won't shoot at 25fps).

We shot the footage.

I converted the footage to 25fps in Magic Bullet Grinder and imported into AE for adding effects. The footage imports correctly. When I export it from AE (as DVCPRO HD 1080p25 1920 x 1080, 1.00 PAR) AE changes dimensions to 1440 x 1080 (1.33 PAR)'to meet format constraints'.

What is the best way to export so that what I deliver to director is correctly formatted as: DVCPRO HD 1920 x 1080 25p?

BTW I have tried also exporting as Apple Pro Res422 and it stays the same dimensions (1920 x 1080). Should we just output from AE as ProRess422 and convert w/ converter software into the correct final format?

Any advice appreciated.

It's time to have a heart-to-heart with the director. Here's why:

To my knowledge, the DVCPro HD codec will not allow images at 1920x1080.
That's why you're getting 1440x1080 in DVCPro HD, and 1920x1080 in ProRes.
Thus, your director is specifying a resolution you can't deliver.

If your director will allow ProRes 422, you can deliver at 1920x1080, the original resolution of the footage.

The DVCPRO HD CODEC only works at 1440x1080 (with a 1.33 PAR). Since the director requested for the DVCPRO HD CODEC, you should be fine with delivering a 1440x1080 (1.33 PAR) movie. It should import into an NLE just fine.
