Can you mix Andersen casement transoms with double hung windows?

The 1" transom windows that are designed to go with anderson tilt wash double hungs show very little glass due to the trim. Andersen casement transoms have less trim, so the glass looks taller. I will call Andersen to see if they can be used together, but wanted to see if anyone here had experience with this.

completely different glass sizes and sight-lines. The casements will have the frame style of a casement and the dbl hungs of a dbl hung meaning they will be completely different and not compatible at all

Thanks. I figured that was the case but wanted to verify. We came down to the wire for ordering, having lost a couple of days to the snow storm in late October. Our contractor ordered 1' transoms to go with our double hung windows, and the glass height is only 5". I wish we could remove the interior trim of the transoms and then replace the vertical dividers just to expose more glass. To my eye, the glass is too small in height when compared to the pane size of the double hung window below it. Live and learn....
