I've worked with video filmed in many different ratios so while a lot
of widescreen material actually is 1:2.35, to say it's standard is
misleading.  Also in an earlier post you mentioned that reducing
1920x1080 to 720x480 gives you an identical image.  This is misleading
as well.  I understand wanting to keep the conversation simple I guess
but it doesn't hurt to give people accurate information to learn from
either.  It's like calling something black when it's actually grey.
