Maybe you can cheat it by setting your timeline in your NLE to edit 16:9, but really edit your 4:3 footage on that timeline. It will have the black wings on the side, but at least it won’t be squashed. Then when you’re all done editing, change the timeline settings back to 4:3. Then export to tape or whatev.
