I'm in debt for a review also, since a long time now. sorry for that.
I tend to see the proposals as a bit too complex for an average user, and
perhaps a little untidy in its organization as well.
In my opinion, it'd be good if options could be progressively presented to
the user, by the time he/she needs them.
And would also be good that the options be arranged matching the decision
process when chosing exporting options, that is selecting:
- File Format
- Video Codec (and its basic settings)
- Audio Codec (and its basic settings)
- then other more fine grained details, which could be considered "advanced"
Last, I'd like to see a tab where the novice user could comfortably select
between the most common Presets for rendering without being forced to make
decisions he/she don't understand (or want!).
So a good and simple Presets section would be important I think. And the
fact that this tab would be the one that is visible when you go to export,
