I'll try to keep this short and sweet

Installed ffmpeg, set everything up to convert, and it then asks me
"Where is progress.app?"

I then have to locate this unknown file on my computer, but I have absolutely no idea where or what it is

Can anyone shed some light on the situation?

Alright, I think i got my first problem sorted out, but I'm not sure
Now I can convert, I'm trying to convert a .wmv file to .avi

So when I hit convert, it either fails, or dings and says its finished
However the entire process takes less than 2 seconds, which I know isnt right.

So I check the directory for where its supposed to be saved and the file is zero bytes in size

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
Will give that a shot when I get home from work

I might as well ask my second question:

I need a photo editing program that can crop at specific sizes
Example, on a pc with adobe photoshop, I can hit the crop tool, then input a fixed size I want the crop selection area to be

So basically if I set the crop size to 240*320, I'll have a crop selector on the image thats 240*320 that I can move around

Are there any programs out there that can do this?
(I spent hours last night going through download.com and version tracker but didnt find any
that do what I want)

Or is my only option to pay for adobe photoshop?
QUOTE Thanks
