libvpx crf does nothing

Reported by: LinAGKar Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: undetermined
Version: 2.0.2 Keywords: libvpx
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

When encoding with libvpx "crf" does not seem to change the quality or bitrate, for example "-crf 4" and "-crf 63" gives almost exactly the same output.
