Pixel aspect ratio problem

I have a problem in After Effects CS 4. I have footage in HDV 50i and for some reasons I won't be using HDV for editing and I converted it in Vegas to DV PAL Widescreen with the pixel aspect ratio 1,46. The converted footage looks just fine. I import it to AE and do some editing. Anyway when I'm done with it I render it out. With the PAL DV widescreen settings BUT the rendered footage looks 4:3. When I import it to Vegas it shows in the footage properties that the video is indeed PAL DV(1,096). I think I've tried everything to fix that in AE. All the composition and footage settings are set to PAL DV widescreen with the pixel aspect ratio 1,46. Weird thing is that AE doesn't let you change the pixel aspect ratio in the output module. I can strech the video(1050x576) but that's not the same thing anymore, because I want to use the original pixel size, not square pixel.
So my question is, what am I doing wrong. I know I can change the pixel aspect ratio back to 1,46 in Vegas but I need to 3d motion track the video first and I can't change it in Voodoo.
