If I understand your question coreectly this may help.After you have edited your clips in widescreen you want to render in letterbox mode. To do this when making your movie you must uncheck the following boxes:
Stretch to fill output frame
Use widescreen DVD format
This should produce a Widescreen video in a letterbox, suitable for showing on a 4:3 screen. If the TV is a widescreen model then the setting on the TV has to be adjusted to “smart2 to avoid distortion. This works for me.
