Thanks Keith - By the way, I’m using Freeway 5.1
I downloaded QuickTime Extras AND QuickTime Extras +
Went through the Edit Actions - Install Actions Dialog and both Actions were grayed out and could not be imported via the file dialog box.
I then did a get info on each Action file to see what the extensions were on the downloads so I could determine vintage and where maybe to install them by hand and/or rename the file extension - however, neither Extra or Extras + had a file extension…
So - anyway, I copied the files into
~/Library/Application Support/Freeway 5/Actions/
restarted Freeway, and I still cannot see these actions…
If anyone has any thoughts - please advise.

From that stance, no. From my point of view, I understand why it
isn’t so great and I can separate out the apps that do allow this
directly from those that don’t with ease - the former are generally
consumer, non-pro tools (I regard Word as definitely non-pro when it
comes to anything other than words & numbers!), and the latter are
generally media-authoring apps of one sort or another. A curious
distinction, but one that makes a certain amount of sense from both
But please, I don’t mean to imply that your expectation was a bad
one! I’m just seeing it from a different angle.
Walter pointed out an add-on action called QuickTime Extras that adds
exactly this functionality; it lets you tell the movie to scale to
the container. This won’t show in Freeway’s design view, but it does
work very effectively.
It is in the Softpress site. I’d go find the link for you, but my
wife’s just called and I have to go meet her…
