[FFmpeg-user] VF Crop and overlay not working together but working seperate

It appears I found the answer,  the issue was one needs to separate multiple video filters with a comma, not by reusing -vf.  Note I also had to move "[out]" to the end of the double video filter command and not just at the end of the overlay command.

Here was the answer that helped:

and here is the command working properly for others to use/learn from (its resizing with -s and doing two video filters, overlay AND crop):

/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i "/home/1280x720videoIN.wmv" -vf "movie=/home/watermark.png [logo]; [in][logo] overlay=640-overlay_w-10:320-overlay_h-10, crop=640:320:0:0 [out]" -s 640x360 -acodec libfaac -ab 128k -keyint_min 20 -vcodec libx264 -vpre lossless_slower -crf 23 -y -v 0 -bf 16 -threads 0 "/home/videoOUT.mp4"

Thanks!  Ffmpeg is SO powerful!
