    have my grand daughter's 352 x 288 video streams in wmv format. I
    have converted them into AVI, and they have gone trough Motion Perfect
    etc. etc. I like to record them to my Sony 320 as is. But the problem
    is that when I record, it is recorded DV Size 720 x 560.

    My question is how can I preserve the original size. I am using
    Premier 6.5 and Ulead Media Studio Pro 6.

    I don't think you can do it that way. Going digital automatically seems to
    want to go the DV route.. You might need to either send it out through an
    analog port, or perhaps (I don't use Premiere or VS) use a moving path
    (Media Studio Pro talk) to return the video to 352x288 with a black border.
    Then it should look the same. But don't quote me.

    The TRV320 is a DV device. You can ONLY record it as DV format (D1 720 x
    scanlines - 480 NTSC or 576 PAL). What you can do, if you want, is make a
    VCD - that's the standard size image used - or make a DVD with MPEG-1 and
    352 x 288. These means will preserve the image size you have downsampled to,
    and give a digital version. I'm not sure whether in going from WMV to MPEG-1
    there's a complete resampling, or just de- and re-compression. If it's just
    de- and re-compression, then I suspect that transcoding losses won't be
    intrusive, and the image quality you get with VCD will match the WMV
    quality. But, and this is a big but, that assumes that your data rate for
    WMV is around or below 1000 Kbit/s (AIUI, WMV is an adaptation of a late
    pre-finalisation stage of the current MPEG4/H264) and it will go to a VCD at
    1500 Kbit/s.

    Other than that, burning it as a data file onto a DVD-R/RW+R/RW should allow
    PC access, but few if any DVD players would recognise it. As MPEG4/DiVX
    chips become more common, I suspect we'll see them play the WMV, but I could
    be wrong.
