Yes, as long as you don’t screw up the video. This means, of course, that you’ll need to know what an “auto” setting is.
One thing that auto-screens does is take the video and automatically reduce what isn’t going to be in the video (the part that can actually be used.) In fact, “auto” has been the default setting since I got my Mac Pro.
Here’s the short version: you use the video, then you choose a level, that’s the auto-level. Or, you can specify a custom level, I think that’s what it is. When you get a chance watch a video, you’ll notice that auto-screens actually reduce the length of the scene by 20%. That’s the feature that allows you to keep playing on a TV for an hour then stop and go see a movie. It works perfectly and looks great. It does this without causing you any problems.
Autoscreen seems to be useful to me. I prefer to make longer movies, and when they are longer, I always want to play them on a computer just to be sure I have a “stop” button, and this is what auto-screens does.
There are two other features that auto-screens adds, too. It has the “save” option, that gives you a choice of whether or not your scenes will be saved, and an option to select a “save” and “restore” command on the fly. They’re not used for editing, but I don’t recall any other feature as useful as that that I wasn’t aware of.
Now, let’s take a look at some screenshots.
For the sake of example:

It’s a picture in the movie. You can see the “res” and “width” controls are set to auto-level 0.2, I can’t be sure why. The controls are for the height of the image.

My images are not square, so I set the aspect ratio to something like 4-5 inches, so they’ll look a lot better, but not quite as big as if I’d chosen to scale them with “auto”.
