A couple of comments as I’ve done some testing of different bit styles doing pocket routing in a few different plywood and MDF types with different bits.

The compression spiral is a good bit if you are cutting completely through the plywood as the compression spiral acts as an upcut on the end and a down cut on the top, basically shearing towards the material in both cases.

For relatively shallow inlay, I recommend a downcut spiral to give the cleanest top surface and fairly minimal fuzz along the cut wall.
