    5120x2160 is stretched in Media Composer 2019

    Can anyone help? I selected the 5120x2160 in source browser (footage shot on Scarlet W dragon sensor in anamorphic), but my 2019 Media Composer Ultimate composer window stretches the image even though the composer is selected to 16x9. When I switch from UHD to 1080p 23.98 in project settings it does the same 4:3 aspect ration. It's my first time working with 5k, so maybe Avid UHD is designed for 4k, 8k, 16k (not 5k)? This is my punishment for spending too much time in Resolve.

    If it was shot in anamorphic, the picture would be captured and stored horizontally squeezed, and you would need to unsqueeze it (in source settings) in post.

    From what I read, the Scarlet W has options for either a 1.3x or a 2x factor anamorphic squeeze, so it would be vital to know exactly which setting they used.
