I'm having a problem with H264 renders from AE. All of the combinations I have tried have either given me a vertically elongated 4x3 render, or a 4x3 that is letterboxed.
I'm working with an NTSC widescreen comp. I have tried checking and un-checking the "Stretch" option (set to widescreen). In the format settings I have set the aspect to square and widescreen. None of these combinations has resulted in a true widescreen aspect. They all look correct in the AE comp window, but look wrong when I play them back. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Also, video encoding is not AE's strong suit -- for example, it cannot do multi-pass encodes. You'd be better off rendering a lossless movie from AE and compressing it with a dedicated compression application. encoding
