Well, at least you're trying... You'll want aspect=4/3 to make the
picture non-horrendous. Also, with movies and animation, you'll want
pullup before your deinterlacer at a minimum.
Sooner or later you'll discover setting a bitrate is a bad idea, as a
fast scene leaves the video looking horrible for *minutes*. vqscale can
work, or perhaps a very large large vratetol=.

Plenty. See pullup vs. interlacing (can't always be guessed
before-hand), and much higher quality at a given bitrate thanks to
2-pass, and other quality-improving options like mbd=2:trell, etc., etc.
which your PC may not be fast enough to do in realtime.
Ha. I'm the idiot.
