If you rendered your film in DV widescreen then it will render your video in fullscreen 4-3 but the image will be squeezed, the same if you play a widescreen dvd with the player set to 16-9 but play it on a 4-3 tv. But once encoded to 16-9 dvd and played on a widescreen tv, you'll see the full widescreen picture.
