>From your filter command I assume it's a 3D half side by side video. As far
as i know, any operation to turn one of the view into a full-resolution
video will need encoding and that process takes time. There are command
line options to speed up the process, but anything high quality will be
time consuming.

Your best bet here is to either find what settings you find acceptable to
balance quality and speed, or use a player that can fake it.
(With some container it might be possible to do that through metadata but
even so, finding a player that would understand it is another matter)
