First, what's a Downscale Filter? What's OBS filtering? What are we DOWNscaling?
Why isn't "Bilinear" stated with a number then "samples", like the other three filters?
I won't list out all my questions here. But what are "samples"? In "Area", "Weighted sum" of what? I found Lanczos resampling on Wikipedia, but that math is too complicated for me.
I Googled this, but all the answers were too complicated like Which downscale filter to use? and Are you using the Lanczos downscale filter in OBS? It might be making your stream look worse.
