FFV1 will crush x264 compression-wise on intra-frame encoding. x264's
lossless intra compression sucks because of idiots writing specs.

Did you compare apples against apples (CABAC vs range, CAVLC vs rice)?
Did you try x264 --preset ultrafast for encoding?
More importantly, FFV1 in inter mode cannot be threaded (inherently
so), while H.264 can.
Of course, now that he's said he only wants lossless, there's no
reason to use x264.
