You need to get to know the Pixel Aspect Ratio Compensation switch at the bottom of the comp window. It looks like an arrow with two heads. Toggled one way, you see things in 4x3, and it all looks smooth. Toggled the other way, you see things in 16x9, but it doesn't look smooth.

Everything renders smoothly. You have to take that as an article of faith.

The roughness of the scaling done by the pixel aspect ratio compensation has been greatly lessened in After Effects CS5, You just need to set the Zoom Quality preference to More Accurate.
