The above chain seems to me very very old yet, despite it's mine
What I just was seeking for with the crop= option was mainly to try to
get rid of the annoying bottom noise, but I know that's not any
effective solution, since I did not add then coordinates, so the
cropping action left equidistant from top 2 bottom, and left 2 right
margins (centered).

I've already ruled denoise3d and pp=de out as options to consider for
the present, this was clear for me just after get the first

But if there were not cropping involved, how could I get rid of that
ugly strip that remains at the bottom? (mainly there, but there is also
a bit at the top).
I know we are aware about scaling in the DOCS, it appears several times
there, and also here; If I remember correctly, it talks somewhere about
scaling height down only a bit and as a bad solution..
il=d:d and il=i:i --> Understood. Thank you for this; Really beautiful!
Again, I'll take note of that, sure this would be useful on lots of
situations. ;-) But now, the state is that I don't own any filter to put
in the -vo chain !! :-)

Thank you again.
