    Hi guys.

    I have to take a whole bunch of little video clips for a blog project I'm working on and currently, here is what I have to do to capture video on the screen:

    1. Open Quicktime Player.
    2. Record and save the screen capture.
    3. Open the screen Capture in Quicktime Player 7 (Different program for whatever reason).
    4. Shrink the video to 640 x 480
    5. Export as a .mov file.

    Is there a simpler way of capturing video without spending a fortune on software? Is there a way to shrink the video in quicktime player that I am missing?

    You could use MPEG Streamclip to batch convert all the screen recordings to a smaller resolution .mov file.

    You could also automate the resizing with Automator.
