      Constrain encoder motion search range · bbe68fbd
      Jingning Han authored
      Explicitly constrain the upper limit of motion search range (in the
      unit of full pixel) to be [-1023, +1023]. It is intended to control
      the effective motion search range for 4K sequences.

      39c7b01d accidently reverted the row/col initialization, which broke
      mv clamps, which is dependent on the sites for valid motion vector
      range. This commit fixed the issue.

      New mode_info_context storage -- undo revert · ac6093d1
      Scott LaVarnway authored
      mode_info_context was stored as a grid of MODE_INFO structs.
      The grid now constists of pointers to MODE_INFO structs.  The
      MODE_INFO structs are now stored as a stream (decoder only),
      eliminating unnecessary copies and is a little more cache
      friendly.

      Adds a new subpel motion function · 1ba91a84
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Adds a new subpel motion estimation function that uses a 2-level
      tree-structured decision tree to eliminate redundant computations.
      It searches fewer points than iterative search (which can search
      the same point multiple times) but has the same quality roughly.
      
      This is made the default setting at speeds 0 and 1, while at
      speed 2 and above only a 1-level search is used.
      
      Also includes various cleanups for consistency and redundancy removal.
      
      Results:
      derf: +0.012% psnr
      stdhd: +0.09% psnr
      Speedup of about 2-3%

      No change when this parameter is set as the original value of 3.
      
      Results:

      Flexible support for various pattern searches · 15b5a6a2
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Adds a few pattern searches to achieve various tradeoffs
      between motion estimation complexity and performance.
      The search framework is unified across these searches so that a
      common pattern search function is used for all. Besides it will
      be easier to experiment with various patterns or combinations
      thereof at different scales in the future.
      
      The new pattern search is multi-scale and is capable of using
      different patterns at different scales.
      
      The new hex search uses 8 points at the smallest scale
      and 6 points at other scales.
      Two other pattern searches - big-diamond and square are
      also added. Big diamond uses 4 points at the smallest scale and
      8 points in diamond shape at the larger scales.
      Square is very similar conceptually to the default n-step search
      but is somewhat faster since it keeps only one survivor across
      all scales.
      
      Psnr/speed-up results on derf300:
      
      hex: -1.6% psnr%, 6-8% speed-up
      big-diamond: -0.96% psnr, 4-5% speedup
      square: -0.93% psnr, 4-5% speedup

      Diamond search change to accelerate movement · a1e2d50b
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Optional change in diamond search to continue in the best move
      direction until that move turns worse.
      
      This is still WIP since the exact way the new method is to be used is
      under investigation. One option is to make it an option in diamond
      search and use it only when motion is large.
      
      Overall slightly positive on derfraw300 +0.02%, stdhdraw +0.13%,
      but works a lot better for high motion sequences (ex. football : +1%).

      Change meaning of cpi->sf.first_step and rename. · e606cac0
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Renamed cpi->sf.first_step to cpi->sf.reduce_first_step_size
      and changed its meaning such that it is a delta applied to
      reduce the default first step size (>> x) in the motion search
      rather than an absolute value.
      
      The default first step size is already changed according to the image
      dimensions (smaller for smaller images). cpi->sf.reduce_first_step_size
      now applies a further correction from the default.

      Add averaging-SAD functions for 8-point comp-inter motion search. · c24d9223
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      Makes first 50 frames of bus @ 1500kbps encode from 3min22.7 to 3min18.2,
      i.e. 2.3% faster. In addition, use the sub_pixel_avg functions to calc
      the variance of the averaging predictor. This is slightly suboptimal
      because the function is subpixel-position-aware, but it will (at least
      for the SSE2 version) not actually use a bilinear filter for a full-pixel
      position, thus leading to approximately the same performance compared to
      if we implemented an actual average-aware full-pixel variance function.
      That gains another 0.3 seconds (i.e. encode time goes to 3min17.4), thus
      leading to a total gain of 2.7%.

      New inter mode context. · 6ff3eb16
      Paul Wilkins authored
      This patch creates a new inter mode contest that avoids
      a dependence on the reconstructed motion vectors from
      neighboring blocks. This was a change requested by
      a hardware vendor to improve decode performance.
      
      As part of this change I have also made some modifications
      to stats output code (under a flag) to allow accumulation of
      inter mode context flags over multiple clips
      
      Some further changes will be required to accommodate the
      deprecation of the split mv mode over the next few days.
      
      Performance as stands is around -0.25% on derf and
      std-hd but up on the YT and YT-HD sets. With further tuning
      or some adjustment to the context criteria it should be
      possible to make this change broadly neutral.

      Add joint motion search in comp_inter_inter mode(experiment) · 9f5811c2
      Yunqing Wang authored
      In current code, motion vectors got from single prediction mode are used
      in compound prediction mode directly. These motion vectors may not give
      accurate prediction since they are searched independently. In this patch,
      we took Pascal's suggestion, and did joint motion search in compound
      prediction mode to find better motion vectors in this situation.
      Test results:
      Overall PSNR: 0.570%(derf), 0.918%(stdhd);
      SSIM: 0.572%(derf), 1.009%(stdhd);
      
      The encoder is a little slower. This can be improved since some c
      code is used in motion search.

      Extend diff MV limit from +/-256 to +/-1024 · 2a5278bd
      Jingning Han authored
      Increase the motion search range by 4x. Change MV_CLASS tree of the
      entropy coding to allow two additional mv classes to cover the
      extended motion vector limit. The codec determines the effective
      motion search range conditioned on the actual frame dimension.
      
      It provides coding gains:
      
      stdhd 0.39%
      yt    0.56%
      hd    0.47%
      
      Major coding performance gains are packed in several sequences with
      intense motion activities, e.g., ped_1080p gains 7% at high bit-rates,
      and on average 3%.
      
      TODO: Need to further tune the rate control and motion search units.
