I am doing all my scenes in D1 NTSC widescreen frame size is 720x486. What is the correct aspect ratio so that my characters do not seem slim or squashed? The default is 1.24!

You are using the correct aspect ratio for D1/DV rendering. To maximize the vertical resolution of NTSC and PAL, they stretch the pixels. If you load your render into your compositor or editor and tell it your clip is 16:9 (Anamorphic) it should stretch it out to the correct aspect as long as the app is using the proper aspect preview.
