Should widescreen SD footage be in a 16:9 project?

Question

I have footage that I'm capturing right now, that was shot with a standard definition camera in widescreen mode. From what I gather, standard definition widescreen footage is actually 4:3 with black on the top and bottom that has been either stretched or cropped to give the illusion of a 16:9 image.

 

So when I import this footage into a videowave project, should I make that project a 16:9 project or a 4:3 project. What will be the difference between the two options when I'm viewing it on DVD?

First part...wrong.

 

Second part....If it is shot in 16:9, create a 16:9 production, in VideoWave.
