oh wait…i understand what you’re saying. You mean shooting 16:9 but have it fill a 4:3 completely? In DVDSP, you can set the display mode to 16:9 Pan & Scan, which will fill a 4:3 TV when sensed and fill a 16:9 when that is sense. But yea, like you all said, if pan and scanned, you’ll have to shoot with the main action in that 4:3 area of the 16:9 footage. I think that’s pointless and will make for bad composition if someone is watching it on a 16:9 TV.
In my opinion, the best way to go is to letterbox the 16:9
