The good news is that you'll still be able to use the ATI player with anamorphic movies after getting the Panamorph. However, you'll have problems with 4:3 and non-anamorphic movies.
The ATI player can unlock the aspect ratio, but only in fullscreen mode. In this mode it stretches everything to fill the screen, which is fine for anamorphic but not good for 4:3 or non-anamorphics. You also will be unable to use YXY with the ATI player + Panamorph combo.
Hopefully ATI will be able to release version 5 of the player before the Panamorph is out the door.
