    Use diamond search to replace full search in full-pixel refining search · cb7b1fb1
    Yunqing Wang authored
    In NEWMV mode, currently, full search is used as the refining search
    after n-step search. By replacing it with an iterative diamond search
    of radius 1 largely reduced the computation complexity, but still
    maintained the same encoding quality since the refining search is
    done for every macroblock instead of only a small precentage of
    macroblocks while using full search.
    
    Tests on the test set showed a 3.4% encoding speed increase with none
    psnr & ssim loss.
