    Hi everyone,

    I'm a bit new to the forums, so forgive me if this has been asked over
    and over again.

    I've been capturing screenshots from an NTSC source into Adobe
    Premiere. The pictures look slightly askew (I'm very picky). Portions
    look slightly "flattened". For instance, talent's face looks narrower.
    Does this have to do with Square Pixels versus Rectangular Pixels?
    Is there a way to correct this?

    I'm capturing via firewire. My project settings are for NTSC 48khz
    (not that the audio matters, I think!). I'm capturing footage from a
    game console if that matters.

    Please e-mail me at - I really appreciate your time

    - James
