  1. standard AV cable with S video capture only gives me 720 x 480 maximum, and I am wondering what screen size I should use when I capture videos of 16:9 source.

    if I capture in 720 x 480, is it better to upsize or downsize to 16:9?

    my device can also capture in 704 x 480, so I can downsize to 704 x 396.
    this brings another question, if I am to downsize to 704 x 396, should I pick the width to be 720 or 704? will horizontal interpolation happen regardless whether I pick the input width to be the same as the output width?

    Not enough information. You could keep it at 720x576. There are many thousands of DVDs whose resolution is 720x480 and encoded as 16:9 to output a 'widescreen' picture.

  3. video game video source that outputs video at 16:9, and I am capturing using AV cable capture device and it doesn't let me capture beyond 720x480

    typically do you capture and upsize or downsize?

  4. Typically I both capture and encode at 720x480. But I cap VHS tapes and later reencode for DVD. You could always get a different capture card and use different connections so you can cap at higher resolutions.

    If making square-pixel videos (like for YouTube), I'll resize to 640x480 for 4:3 material and 852x480 for 16:9 material.
