Did I? I don't recall saying that specifically about H.264 and BD. If you really want to max out the bitrate and accept that reduction in runtime/extras, I agree with drmpeg that turning it off would be feasiable, and probably useful.

This isn't something we've sweated with VC-1 since ours is more focused, and so kind of fades away at higher bitrates without needed to be explicitly turned off.

Also, the loop filter isn't something that needs to be on/off for a whole movie. It can be turned on or off for different sections, at least in our VC-1 encoder.
