I note that you force the framerate to 24000/1001... I don't know what
kind of source doom9 is gonna use, but it may not be NTSC dvds
(mencoder need the framerate of those sources to be set). I also note
here that you did not use any inverse telecine filters. Is that
I have little experience with ntsc contents, but if I'm not mistaken,
failure to properly inverse telecine results in artifacts and bad
picture quality.

Now, doom9 is maybe using a frameserver such as avisynth which can
probably do all the filtering, I don't know.

Those are the kind of details that matter a great deal if they are
forgotten or not well made.
