good point. actually i sort of consider this a type of "pulldown"...
any conversion of progressive content to a format for display on an
interlaced device is pulldown from my standpoint. and vf_pullup should
be able to reverse it, although i expect vf_phase is better for this
specific case.

anyway thanks for jumping in.
