I always wonder if this is supposed to work (it 
apparently works, but I don't think you can protest 
if it breaks in the future), please only use one 
video filter chain per output file.

Just in case the following is not clear:

The fieldmatch filter is not supposed to work on 
its own, it can only function followed by the 
decimate filter.

The yadif filter damages telecined streams (that 
by definition can be restored) permanently, don't 
use it unless you know that your source is 
actually interlaced (and not telecined).

(This is documented iirc.)
