Original filtered

Now if we want to save the filtered result for subsequent 2-pass MPEG encoding, which codec is best ?

Huffyuv with "convert to YUY2" setting; this is bad: Use RGB instead !

Settings for PICvideo; still much better quality settings possible
(this here produces a file size like DV; 1,1 would produce a file size like Huffyuv with YUY2)

DV codec settings. Do not use "fastest", it would result in bad quality !
