Limit arf interval for low fpf clips.

This patch limits  the maximum arf interval length to
approximately half a second. In some low fps animations in
particular the existing code was selecting an overly long interval
which was hurting visual quality. For a sample problem test clip
(360P animation , 15fps, ~200Kbit/s) this change also improved
metrics by >0.5 db.

There may be some clips where this hurts metrics a little, but the
worst case impact visually is likely to be less than having an
interval that is much too long. On more normal material at 24
fps or higher, the impact is likely to be nil/minimal.
