I'm trying to import a video that was taken in NTSC 720, 480... but I took it sideways... so it's really 480 by 720 tall... I'm having problems importing and working with this clip in CompositeLab Pro. It comes out squished... can someone help.

I'm assuming that you are importing the footage in the standard horizontal format, then rotating it in CompositeLab? Does the footage look correct when you import it, then go wonky when you rotate? My first guess is that it is related to the non-square pixels used by Dv footage, but a bit more specific info about your process and where exactly the problem arises would be helpful.
