I believe that you are incorrect. What you are saying is that 2-pass
can't possibly give you a better quality encode than doing it in one
pass with a chosen crf value that you choose. My experience with doing
encodes both ways shows that the 2-pass encode is visually better in
quality, and, as a bonus, the file is not arbitrarily large. As Phil
suggests, try it for yourself.
