I can see from that that the -sws_flags didn't take.

I don't have your input and like Carl Eugen said the upload site is so
annoying I haven't seen your output either. Even if I had I don't know
how it was made or how good any 10 -> 8 bit conversion was, plus I would
be viewing on a crappy tn panel which likely doesn't even do 8 bit.

I did a test with some 48 bit rgb sgi images

In summary rather than -sws_flags appending below to the scale command


got a different output for me. I don't know how you would test 10 bit
though as making/displaying jpg involves another conversion, which may
give different output depending on what/what parameters are involved.
