Exporting 16:9 Anamorphic Video

Instead of outputting to tape, you may want to export your 16:9 anamorphic sequence
to a media file for online distribution or DVD authoring. Here are some common export
file formats and the commands used to create them:

 QuickTime movie: For online distribution via the Export Using QuickTime

Conversion command

 MPEG-2, MPEG-4, or H.264: For DVD or online distribution via the Export Using

Compressor command

Unlike output to standard definition tape, which may require letterboxing to fit in a
4:3 aspect ratio, there is no need to letterbox media files because they can have any
dimensions you want (in this case, 16:9).
