Why is YCgCo not lossless in FFmpeg? Problem with using the
grba colorspace is that it is a fair bit larger than a lossless

Someone on StackExchange pointed out that -color_range does not
affect the output. I was able to get the image to look right by
using -vf scale=out_range=pc and then -vf scale=in_range=pc for
for the reverse.
