My first post, so Iwill start by saying hello to everyone.

Can someone tell me how to put a 4 x 3 video onto a widescreen timeline without it being stretched out to fit the screen.
If, I change the project editing mode to 'Video for Widows' then the timeline clips will do exactly what I want and do it instantly with no rendering required.
But..the picture vanishes from my TV monitor and 'Encore' does not recognise the files that are output to it.
So while 'Video for Windows' is just what I need, how do I output and capture the project.
