Q.  I am creating some graphics for a video project.  What dimensions should I used?

A.  The Adobe Premiere manual says (pg 43):

If your square-pixel program requires dimensions, use the option that matches
your project's output:

- 4:3 DV (NTSC) or ATSC SD - create and save the square-pixel file at 720x534
- 4:3 D1 (NSTC) - create and save the square-pixel file at 720x540
- 4:3 DV or D1 (PAL) - create and save the square-pixel file at 768x540
- 16:9 DV (NTSC) - create and save the square-pixel file at 864x480
- 16:9 D1 (NTSC) - create and save the square-pixel file at 864x486
- 16:9 DV or D1 (PAL) - create and save the square-pixel file at 1024x576
- 16:9 1080i HD - create and save the square-pixel file at 1920x1080
- 16:9 720p HD - create and save the square-pixel file at 1280x720
