If you are talking about this
, it only is a problem with resolutions which do not affect BDs and DVDs, thus it's not a problem which she should care about.
Re: filesize: a smart thing to do is scaling back to 1280x720 since it's very much likely the actual detail of the source doesn't go beyond that (very few anime are actual 1080p in the drawings, mostly ghibli stuff). That's going to cut filesize to about 10GB per 24 minutes at 23.976fps with utvideo YUV420 with predict median. You'll still want to just do lossless clips for the scenes you'll actually use, though, if space is an issue.
