    New threading method: · 7b4f6a1f
    Loren Merritt authored
    Encode multiple frames in prallel instead of dividing each frame into slices.
    Improves speed, and reduces the bitrate penalty of threading.
    
    Side effects:
    It is no longer possible to re-encode a frame, so threaded scenecut detection
    must run in the pre-me pass, which is faster but less precise. 
    It is now useful to use more threads than you have cpus. --threads=auto has
    been updated to use cpus*1.5.
    Minor changes to ratecontrol.
    
    New options: --pre-scenecut, --mvrange-thread, --non-deterministic
