Resize, mod16, and AR questions

Was reading this thread, which got picked up by a google search on another topic.

In above thread morte66 said that x264 deals with non-mod16 source fine and that is better than undercropping, yet I still find this error in the logs:
Code:
x264 [warning]: width or height not divisible by 16 (720x360), compression will suffer.
Is it safe to ignore that warning.

In a similar vein morte55 also suggests minimizing resizes (something I'm just now trying to do):

Quote:
I always want to minimise the amount of resizing. I want a maximum of one resize in the whole rip-to-view chain. If it's a DVD for PC use I encode the original pixels and resize on playback.
Can anyone explain the meaning of "encode the original pixels"? How do I do that? I have some trouble wrapping my head around all the AR stuff.

It just means don't do any resizing.
