The Super-16 full camera aperture is 1.68 : 1. Normally this would be trimmed slightly and transferred to 16x9 video (1.78 : 1). But you could crop the sides to 4x3 (1.33 : 1), which is more or less the regular 16mm area of the Super-16 frame. You might transfer to 16x9 HD and center-crop to 4x3 for a downconversion to either 4x3 PAL or NTSC. Or first make a separate 16x9 HD version with a 4x3 side-matte, then use that to make 4x3 standard def versions.

Obviously if you composed Super-16 for cropping top & bottom to 2.39, cropping instead side to side to 1.33 is a pretty different composition. You won't really get a good composition for both 2.39 and 1.33 out of the same negative.

Probably you'd take a 16x9 HD transfer, crop top & bottom to 2.39 (assuming you framed for that) for the film transfer and for any letterboxed version -- but also make a 4x3 version from 16x9 full-frame with some panning & scanning to make it acceptable in 4x3.

This is a very complex question because of the wide differences between cinemascope and TV frame!
