Hi, relatively new to FC Studio/Compressor and I'm trying to create a 480p (720x480) DVD out of my HD source (Apple ProRes 422, 1920x1080) that has a 29.97 frame rate.

I tried using what I normally use for 480i DVDs (best quality preset setting) then adjusted the settings by selecting the H.264 for DVD Studio Pro file format in the inspector. I managed to get what appears to be a 'progressive' output (sure looks much better), but in the process the aspect ration gets squashed to 4x3.

Am I using the right process to get to 480p? How can I retain the same aspect ratio as my source?

I hope I've given enough information, but I'm not sure so please let me know.
