[FFmpeg-user] Why is format=rgb24 required after maskedmerge?

One of the things about man pages is that users invariably lack the man command under windows, and you don't get the man pages with most windows builds of ffmpeg anyway.
The executable emits messages about man pages, which I've always viewed as practically a bug on Windows builds which will invariably not have them available.

Multiple outputs is not duplicative? If the same info in the same format is
in two places, that rather sounds like duplication.
Re man pages- last time I checked, those are not considered web pages and
have a different format & usage, therefore not the same. (OTOH, I don't use
the man pages, so..... see below.)
It's obviously easy for anyone adverse to change to find examples of "it's
not like that!!". It should also be obvious that different styles of
documentation work for different people- some always go to a man-page style
doc, some find topic/area-based html pages easier to use. Don't like one of
those? Don't use it. But also don't denigrate those who do.
And... how many questions on this list wouldn't need to be asked if the docs
provided the answer _to_the_questioner_? Half? Two-thirds? If the docs were
really great, we probably wouldn't be having this discussion.
