vhq has been obsoleted by mbd=2, and you might want to use "trell" also.
Are you sure you want a keyint value that low?

You are generally better off using vqscale instead of vbitrate for
single-pass encoding.

You really need to use a deinterlacer (before cropping).  

I suggest trying the lavcopts "nr=" option rather than denoise3d filter,
for both speed (and, IMHO, quality).  Start around "nr=400" and raise it
a bit if you still get too much noise, and lower it if the video gets
noticably blocky.

Using pp for encoding isn't recomended at all.
