Hi John,

960x720 uses non square pixels to create a 1280x720 image. Do you have the "toggle pixel aspect ratio" button selected? This tells AE to convert your non-square pixels to a square pixel preview. It's under your composition preview and looks like a box with a line over it.

Your comp should be setup as DVCPro HD 720 23.976
