The original poster was ripping DVDs (not me), I agree that my options are
finetuned for TV capture and should be modified for DVD.

Probably correct for DVD, for TV the noise level is so much higher that it
makes sense to increase the default. Actually, TV hereby is very noisy and
I almost fell from my chair when I saw the result of hqdn3d... it was just
so much cleaner (especially due to temporal filtering).

Ouch. Why's that? The ghosts are present in every frame, so I wouldn't
expect it to affect ME negatively.

Actually, I agree. I'll change my script. Two B-frames didn't make it worse
than with no B-frames at all, but it didn't increase the quality
significantly either (I think something like 0.02 dB... I don't remember if
I tried just one B-frame).
Yes, with the options I showed, mencoder was *slow*. You probably can't
make it slower than that.. except with vme=1, but surprisingly that
actually lowered image quality (it definitely should not with rate
distortion optimization cmp=6, so something must be wrong...).
Actually, rate distortion optimization improved quality very little if at
all, I think it should improve it more. Anyone know what's wrong with it?
