The version is:
ffmpeg version 2.5.7-0ubuntu0.15.04.1 Copyright (c) 2000-2015 the FFmpeg  
   built with gcc 4.9.2 (Ubuntu 4.9.2-10ubuntu13)

All my 4 cores were used to the fullest. I want the same fps as without  
the fade filter in the parts of the video where there is no fading. The  
video is 105 minutes long. Fade ins and outs are all in the first eleven  
seconds. I do not mind if these first eleven seconds are rendered  
super-slowly, but why does the whole encoding process (for the whole  
105-minute-long video) take about 2.5 as long as without the fade filter?
