I've recorded a short movie with my SonyDCR-PC1000E MiniDV Cam in 16:9 mode and captured with Avid and cut.
Now I would like to burn the finished movie on DVD and just do not know how I s.besten export. Initial tests on Quicktime let the Picture will appear in the wrong aspect ration (squashed).
I could see the Instructions of Sonynichts on the actual resolution of the camera in 16:9 mode. What I need to provide an image resolution when exporting to QuickTime? I've tried it with 640x360. The aspect ratio seems to agree here, but the bad image quality leaves much to be desired.
I could work at a friend with ProCoder. But this I would have to create a QuickTimeRef and there I can not adjust aspect ratio, which looks like squashed the Ref. Can this be fixed with ProCoder? Is that correct? What setting do I need to ProCoder to reach a good result (it must not be great, since the starting material is already very rauschig, due to poor lighting conditions) in the rotation.
Sorry for so much ignorance. It works its way forward, piece by piece, and every time one thinks one has gathered it, one is suddenly faced a new problem with thousands of possibilities to solve.
Thanks for the help.

the Instructions for the PC1000 features a "real", that is anamorphic 16:9 widescreen. About anamorphic 16:9 in the following contributions will help you:
