Comment (by pdr0):

 I can replicate the issue with an 8bit PNG sequence. Windows x64

 I tested 3.2.4 vs. current. The old version is roughly 2x faster, similar
 to DonMoir's observations

 My observations:
 - RGB24 (suggests problem isn't alpha channel related)
 - image sequence (suggests it's not MOV or other container related)
 - 1000 frames (so test isn't too short)
 - multiple runs, repeatable (not some "outlier" or random event)
 - SSD (not I/O limited)
 - forcing -threads "x" doesn't help (where "x" is some number low or high)
 - relationship holds whether decoded as rawvideo (-c:v rawvideo), or just
 passed through as null (wrapped AV frame)
