With some overlay+pad magic you should be able to compare img1,img2 and diff on the same image. Similarly should function with vid frames.

It would be useful to have a few different styles of diffing from an outline to color inversion and clipping similar to what is demonstrated here:

There is a vf compare patch on the fork mailing list. Since there is no activity related since a while, someone may want to pick it and make something out of it. It shouldn't require that much work.

The compare filter does something completely different and does not look proper to use it for extending with diff stuff.

diff filter could be just be subset of blend filter.

You can use blend filter : blend=all_mode=difference (among others) or make your own with eval expr, documentation with examples is in usual place.
