Most people prefer an image that is resized horizontaly.  So if you original is
512x304, then you would set the AR res to 540x304 to get 16:9.  It would be
strange, but I guess that you could have a disproportioned source where either
the height needed to be increased or the width decreased.  Pretty much all
anamorphic sources though will need to have the width increased.
