Here's the main page for Avisynth, which will answer both of your questions. (You really should try to google stuff like this first...)

It's not made to run on macs, but this sticky in the mac section goes over how to use it in mac-land

I like to think of AviSynth as a programing language you can use to manipulate your footage.

Here's an example script you can write with Notepad, or AvsPmod:
Code: Select all
avisource("C:\AMV\randomclip.avi")
crop(8,0,-8,0)
spline36resize(768,432)

Translated to English, this basically means:
1. go get your avi clip from that location on your computer
2. then chop off 8 pixels from the left; 0 from the top; 8 from the right and; 0 from the bottom
3. then resize your clip to a resolution of 768x432 pixels using a spline36 method

"Avisynth is a scripting language for video frame and audio sample manipulation" is probably the best description. It's a scripting frontend to a C library with functions to do various things to a video or audio clip. That's the basic gist of it anyway.
