Avisynth/mpeg2dec slows down Tmpgenc?

I read this article: http://www.doom9.org/mpg/d2a-mpeg2dec.htm and decided to do a little test using Tmpgenc. I tried 3 things:

1. I have an DVD2AVI project file (.d2v) and loaded this directly into Tmpgenc to encode a short clip with the VCD-template.

2. I used VFAPI to make a frameserving AVI-file from the d2v-file and loaded this into Tmpgenc to encode a short clip with the VCD-template.

3. I made a simple avs-file with the following lines:
LoadPlugin("c:\temp\MPEG2DEC.DLL")
mpeg2source("movie.d2v")
and loaded this into Tmpgenc to encode a short clip with the VCD-template.

The first 2 methods were about equally fast. They were both about twice as fast as the avs-method.

My test results seem to disagree with the article above (which states that using Avisynth will increase speed because no YUV2 --> RGB conversion is necessary).

Q1. Why is that?
Q2. Does it make any sense to use an avs-file to encode with Tmpgenc (apart from using specific resize and other filters)?

In DVD2AVI, did you make sure color space was set to YUV? Because this is where all the speed is coming from (since this eliminates the conversion).

Yes, the color space is set to YUV 4:2:2. The YUV-->RGB setting is set to PC scale. Don't know exactly what this means but I'm guessing it doesn't matter because this isn't applied because of the first setting.

Try resizing it before you put it into TMPG..when I used to use TMPG, I noticed that if I let it resize using the avisyth plugin..it was slow, when I added the "BilinearResize(X,X)" into my avisynth file...it got significantly faster.
