Sounds like you're using bad encoding options or something... The SGI
encoder might even do lowpass spacial and temporal filters before
encoding to clean up the noise and make it compress better, too. You
should read encoding-tips.txt before saying lavc generates bad output,
since normally the problem lies between the keyboard and the chair...
