[FFmpeg-user] libx264 CRF with VBV

Am I correct in assuming that with these options:

-vcodec libx264 -crf 20 -bufsize 2000k -maxrate 2500k

that the "max rate + bufsize" settings basically create a limit on the
quality--i.e. it could at times fall below crf 20 because of those
extra settings?  crf becomes a "suggestion" here?
