I was able to reproduce this even with my low resolution source. It needs to be (or converted to) YV12 though, even YUY2 works. With my slightly older MVTools it also crashes with super_pel=2, but not 1.

I don't think the block size affects the search radius. The block size tells how large blocks the algorithm is trying to track, while the search radius tells how far the block can move between frames. I guess the practical upper limit for the search radius is the width of the frame (or height, if that one is larger). [EDIT] Actually it's the diagonal of the frame, Sqrt(width*width + height*height). And here we're assuming the radius is defined in pixels, which it is not in every search algorithm.

I found a MVTools2 bug earlier which was only triggered every 10th or 20th run of the script, reported here.

I guess pinterf is very busy but he did respond to my bug reports swiftly, I think the deciding factor there was that he was able to reproduce the problem. So in this case with almost 100% error rate I think he can find the issue pretty soon.

Certainly possible but I would do that only as last resort, let's give Pinterf a chance to do a fix first. With the details you figured out your error report would be very good. Getting rid of the reverse polish notation is on my todo list.

I agree, I have found two bugs from MVTools using the optimizer, both were fixed. Perhaps I should also add a mode to the optimizer where you give it a failing script and it tries to figure out all the parameter combinations that trigger the error.

Another fun (or not) idea that is already possible would be to find the slowest possible parameter combinations... perhaps combined with the worst quality too!

Thanks for the suggestion, I have updated the first post.
