The last filter (yadif=1) is only there to visually check the results, as 
I have a progressive display. If you are encoding to a 30i file, you can 
remove the yadif=1 filter form the filter chain.

It's there to be able to visually see the result. Remove the yadif filter 
from the end of the filter chain if you are encoding a file.
