Can anyone recommend links to explain how pixel shape (whether rectangular or square) affects video...or maybe how you use pixel shape for various types of video?

thank you!

If you do a google for "video pixel aspect ratio" you should find tons of info. You'll mainly encounter non-square pixels with DV or D1.
This link dicusses the topic with regards to After Effects -http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/1809a.htm

If you know you will be using non-square pixels you can set the aspect ratio in the camera properties so you won't need to compensate for it.
