Default Video playing 4:3 instead of 16:9

Hi everyone,
I've exported a sequence from Premiere CS5 as quicktime movie, in order to edit the sound and foley in Protools 9.
My problem is that Protools opens the video as 4:3 instead of the correct 16:9 aspect ratio?

I've read that this quite a common problem.....but I can't seem to find a simple fix. Any advice would be welcome?
cheers

Darren Wharton

It sounds like the movie does not have square pixels but 1.3:1 instead.

Default Re: Video playing 4:3 instead of 16:9

I am having this EXACT SAME issue. The Video is playing back 4:3 in Pro Tools. It plays back correctly in Quick Time (same file at 16:9). In fact, it plays back correctly in Quick Time if I export a small chunk from Pro Tools.

But WITHIN Pro Tools, while I am working, the video is displaying 4:3.

I can't find any controls that deal with the display of video...
