    Hi there, new to the forums here so take it easy on me:p

    I did a search on MRoogle with no satisfactory results.

    Recently I decided it'd be fun to put together a movie and while I've slowly been getting used to iMovie HD (first time using it 'properly'), I still haven't been able to "master" it yet.

    I was wondering whether it's possible to resize some of the clips I have? Some of the clips are different sizes and my intention is to publish the movie on something like YouTube or similar. I don't know if YouTube does this automatically? I don't remember it like that. I don't want to have varying sizes of the clips when I send it to my friends, either, so..

    Can I resize the clips so they're all the same size? Can I do that in iMovie HD, or anything else on my Mac? Or do I have to download another piece of software to do this?

    Also, I'm not looking to spend any money on a professional editing program so please bear that in mind :)

    The movies are in Quicktime MPEG-4 format if that's helpful.

    Thanks!:)

    I don't use iMovie personally, but I believe it automatically resizes video clips when they're added.

    Generally, it will resize all the clips to the project size, if the clip is smaller - it will either stretch or put black bars around it, I can't remember right now.
