Allow resizing exported videos
I have created some movies in iMovie HD and I'm now looking for a way to export them to plain videos using free codecs. The projects are in DV Widescreen format and their contents were imported from a video camera. Their resolution is 1024x576 or something like that.
So I downloaded and installed XiphQT. Everything works as I expected, as it is very easy for me to create an OGM file with a very decent quality. Unfortunately, the resulting files are still too big for redistribution.
I need (want) to scale down the videos to half the size. And I can't see any way to do that from XiphQT's interface. (Of course I could do that later... but that means recoding the video once more, thus losing more quality.)
However, if I select I want to create a QuickTime Movie, the interface has a 'Size...' button that lets me specify the size and aspect ratio of the resulting movie.
Based on my (very poor) understanding of OS X's frameworks, adding such a feature to the interface should be fairly easy. So this is a request for such a feature :-)
