Converting footage from 16:9 to 4:3 (or vice versa)

Having loaded up yesterday's footage onto my PC, Only now we discover that one camera shot in 16:9, while the other was 4:3 … and Pinnacle Studio v9 doesn’t allow mixing footage of two different aspect ratios. And if you use Pinnacle’s built-in conversion from 16:9 to 4:3 it stretches rather than adding black strips (letterbox) at the top and bottom.

Any conversion ideas gratefully received!
