efficiently downscaling subsampled video to full resolution chroma

My element wants to analyse small video frames with the luma and
chroma planes at the same resolution. The source video has subsampled

If I scale the video first (i.e. videoscale ! videoconvert), I lose
chroma information because it goes down to half resolution before
being scaled up. If I convert the chroma first, I waste time doubling
the large chroma planes just to shrink them again.

I'm guessing I have to do the latter and just not worry about it. Is
that the case?
