In comparision with Cin rendering, the DeVeDe dual pass with YADIF 
deinterlacing did compress the movie_0.mpg more and it was verified as 
progressive. All progressive dvd video qualities were visual comparable.

    du -sh dvd-wide-*/*.mpg dvd-wide-*/*/movie*.mpg
    598M dvd-wide-dv01_20230526-225332/dvd.mpg
    598M dvd-wide-dv01-ffmpeg_20230527-000911/dvd.mpg
    380M dvd-wide-dv01-dualpass-yadif/movies/movie_0.mpg

    mediainfo dvd-wide-*/*.mpg dvd-wide-*/*/movie*.mpg | grep Scan
    Scan type                                : Progressive
    Scan type                                : Progressive
    Scan type                                : Progressive

Regarding Dvd Interlaced Chroma:
Possibly PAL dv 4.2.0 is more pleasant for MPEG-2/DVD 4.2.0 than NTSC dv 
4:1:1 (?)
