Does ffmpeg only re-encode a maximum of 1 times per stream, when you execute any command no matter the number/kinds of operations/flags?
For example very simply I tried:
ffmpeg -i input -r 33 -r 54 output
To see if there was any indication that it did re-encode twice, and the streams seemed to show the same changes as if there was only a single
-r flag there.
Given my limited understanding of the information on the official site (I looked through this stuff again: https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.html#toc-Detailed-description) documentation I'm leaning towards the notion that there's only 0-1 re-encodes happening per stream based solely on whether I specify copy or not (outside of errors). Is this the correct understanding of things?
