Animation to QuickTime Movie? (EMERGENCY)


I'm creating some simple Mathematica animations by using a Do[] loop to 
create 20 successive Plot[]s, which I need to convert to QuickTime 
movies (on a Mac iBook, Mathematica 4.2, OS 9.2)..

Selecting the Graphics cells and using the menu commands "Edit>>Save As 
QuickTime" or "Save Selection as QuickTime" produces QuickTime movies, 
and these play just fine in the QuickTime Player-- except only about the 
upper left 25% of each plot appears in the QuickTime player window.

Changing the Plot sizes using ImageSize doesn't seem to change this, nor 
does stretching the QuickTime window; and I haven't found any settable 
options or prefs in either Mathematica or QT Player which seem to do anything to 
fix this, nor any helpful information in their documentation.

What do I need to do?

(Email replies much appreciated; I'm up against a tight deadline in 
getting this done.)

(My eventual goal is to link to the movie from an Adobe Acrobat 5.0 
document, if that makes any difference.)
