      fix the mix use of errorperbit and sadperbit · d8c525b8
      Yaowu Xu authored
      error_per_bit and sad_per_bit were designed as estimates of a bit worth
      of sum squared error and sum absolute difference respectively. Under
      this assumption, error_per_bit should be used in combination with 2nd
      order errors (variance or sum squared error) while sad_per_bit should
      be used in combination with 1st order SADs in motion estimation. There
      were a few places where sad_per_bit has been misused with variances,
      this commit changes to use error_per_bit for those places, also changes
      parameter names to properly indicate which constant is being used.
      
      On cif set, the change has a universal gain by all metrics: 0.13% by
      average/overall psnr and 0.1% by ssim.

      Using int_mv instead of MV · 6b25501b
      Scott LaVarnway authored
      The compiler produces better assembly when using int_mv
      for assignments.  The compiler shifts and ors the two 16bit
      values when assigning MV.

      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.

      Use sub-pixel search's SSE in mode selection · b8f0b599
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Passed SSE from sub-pixel search back to pick_inter_mode
      function, which is compared with the encode_breakout to
      see if we could skip evaluating the remaining modes.

      Reduce unnecessary distortion computation · 918fb548
      Yunqing Wang authored
      In vp8_pick_inter_mode(), for NEWMV mode, use the error result got
      from motion search as distortion. This helps performance in real-
      time mode.

      Use full-pixel MV in mvsadcost calculation · 3d681581
      Yunqing Wang authored
      MV sad cost error is only used in full-pixel motion search,
      which only need full-pixel resolution instead of quarter-pixel
      resolution. This change reduced mvsadcost table size, and
      removed unneccessary pamameter passing since this table is
      constant once it is generated.

      Improve motion search in real-time mode · 41e6eceb
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Applied better MV prediction in real-time mode, which improves
      the encoding quality.
      
      Used quarter-pixel search instead of iterative sub-pixel search
      for speed >=5 to improve encoding performance.
      
      Tests on the test set showed:
      1. For speed=-5, quality improvement: 1.7% on AvgPSNR and 2.1%
      on SSIM, performance improvement: 3.6% (This counts in the
      performance lose caused by MV prediction calculation in "Improve
      MV prediction in vp8_pick_inter_mode() for speed>3").
      2. For speed=-8, quality improvement: 2.1% on AvgPSNR and 2.5%
      on SSIM. but, 6.9% performance decrease because of MV prediction
      calculation. This should be improved later.

      Fix bug in motion search · 3675b229
      Yunqing Wang authored
      The maximum possible MV in 1/8 pel units is (1<<11), which could
      cause mvcost out of its range that is 1023. Change maximum
      possible MV in 1/8 pel units to (1<<11)-8 will fix this problem.

      Fix a bug in motion search code · 7fb0f868
      Yunqing Wang authored
      The MV's range is 256. Since the new motion search uses a different
      starting MV than the center ref MV, a MV range checking needs to
      be done to avoid corruption.

      Improve MV prediction accuracy to achieve performance gain · c3bbb291
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Add vp8_mv_pred() to better predict starting MV for NEWMV
      mode in vp8_rd_pick_inter_mode(). Set different search
      ranges according to MV prediction accuracy, which improves
      encoder performance without hurting the quality. Also,
      as Yaowu suggested, using diamond search result as full
      search starting point and therefore adjusting(reducing)
      full search range helps the performance.

      Full search SAD function optimization in SSE4.1 · 71ecb5d7
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Use mpsadbw, and calculate 8 sad at once. Function list:
      vp8_sad16x16x8_sse4
      vp8_sad16x8x8_sse4
      vp8_sad8x16x8_sse4
      vp8_sad8x8x8_sse4
      vp8_sad4x4x8_sse4
      
      (test clip: tulip)
      For best quality mode, this gave encoder a 5% performance boost.
      For good quality mode with speed=1, this gave encoder a 3%
      performance boost.

      Add half-pixel variance RTCD functions · 209d82ad
      John Koleszar authored
      NEON has optimized 16x16 half-pixel variance functions, but they
      were not part of the RTCD framework. Add these functions to RTCD,
      so that other platforms can make use of this optimization in the
      future and special-case ARM code can be removed.
      
      A number of functions were taking two variance functions as
      parameters. These functions were changed to take a single
      parameter, a pointer to a struct containing all the variance
      functions for that block size. This provides additional flexibility
      for calling additional variance functions (the half-pixel special
      case, for example) and by initializing the table for all block sizes,
      we don't have to construct this function pointer table for each
      macroblock.
