OK, so you need to crop to 480 while it's still 422 and then do an
interlace aware scale to 420 before processing any further.

That's assuming you want to start with 420. I don't know whether or not
all the filters you need will work with 422.

Of course after yadif then you are progressive so if you did work in 422
then the final conversion wouldn't need to be interlace.

I noticed when testing the trac sample (I don't have access to others)
that I needed to specify bff for yadif - just another potential issue to
look out for.
