You can simplify this by using sendcmd:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vf 
"sendcmd=f=test.cmd,crop at 1=352:496:0:36,scale=iw:ih/2,hqdn3d=2:1.5:12 

The file "test.cmd" contains these two lines:
2888.36 crop at 1 y 42;
3293.96 crop at 1 y 38;

The above example is untested. There is a similar example at the end of 
chapter 2.86 in my book:
