I have no performance problems at all and actually, performance is not an
issue for me with this. My main concern is the correctness of the vertical
compensation applied during the scaling (assuming you have to remove some
noise from top and bottom).

No...In both cases I'm cropping before the actual encoding. It's just that in
one example I downscale before cropping and in the other one I crop before
downscaling. Those were video filters and I understand these 2 (crop &
scaling) are applied BEFORE the actual encoding.

Could you please explain the '-10" part? I read the man page but I still
don't get it quite well.
