    If you want to keep the complete 960x720 image an put it on your 720x480 to fill the frame completely - you have to expect some distortion, as 720x480 and 960x720 have different ratios.

    There is one way that I will suggest.
    It does entail cropping part of your original image, but sometimes that can be a positive move.

    Here is a Video tutorial I made explaining the Ratio difference problems and how I solve the problem.

    Good luck.

    You're going to have to make a sacrifice somewhere.  You can't fit the image in the 720x480 space full frame because it'll stretch it out.  To keep it from stretching, you can't fill the frame.
