sorry dominik, i already read the thread on -advusers and i don't
think i can help. actually it sounds like the problem is similar to
the one in the utena dvds which i just discussed in another thread. if
you want me to take a look at it, try to isolate the problem clip from
the mpeg file so i can download just that. i don't want to download 90
megs just to confirm that the problem is unfixable...

btw, a combination you might try is -vf pp=lb,divtc=deghost=...
