Prefers quality over performance. This mode always runs in software and insures that hardware implementations, which may differ from the XVP are not used.


The MrfCrf444 algorithm uses larger filters, full precision for color conversions, prefers higher quality color formats, and enables a high quality MRF deinterlacer. Developers who want their apps to produce the best quality output regardless of the hardware, time, or power consumption, may want to enable this algorithm for transcoding.
