Summary0001678: Please add custom "Scale to" pixel dimensions

For example recently I was trying to make a DCP of the following file:

An anamorpic DVD-rip with the dimensions 720x576 and a pixel aspect ratio of 64/45. The active picture in this particular film is 2.00:1, that is 720x512 unstretched and 1024x512 when the mentioned pixel aspect ratio is applied.

So, what I would like to do in this case is crop 32 off top and bottom (576-512)/2 and then scale it up to either 1998x1000 (2.00:1 in FLAT) or 2048x1024 (2.00 in SCOPE) and then add padding for the target container format.

I was not able to do this in the current version of DoM.

One solution would be to just add the 2.00 format in the scale to drop-down list, but I think it would be really useful to have custom scale to pixel dimensions because this will probably not be the last weird aspect ratio a user will encounter.

Thanks for considering!

Sorry, the second alternative in my third paragraph above is not SCOPE but rather Full container because it overflows the 2K SCOPE height of 858px.

Hopefully the changes made as part of 0001669 will satisfy this request. Let me know if not!
