      Further experimentation with the mode context · a57dbd95
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Experiments with a larger set of contexts and some
      clean up to replace magic numbers regarding the
      number of contexts.
      
      The starting values and rate of backwards adaption
      are still suspect and based on a small set of tests.
      Added forwards adjustment of probabilities.
      
      The net result of adding the new context and forward
      update is small compared to the old context from the
      legacy find_near function.  (down a little on derf but
      up by a similar amount for HD)
      
      HOWEVER.... with the new context and forward update
      the impact of disabling the reverse update (which may be
      necessary in some use cases to facilitate parallel decoding)
      is hugely reduced.
      
      For the old context without forward update, the impact of
      turning off reverse update (Experiment was with SB off) was
      Derf - 0.9, Yt -1.89, ythd -2.75 and sthd -8.35. The impact was
      mainly at low data rates.
      
      With the new context and forward update enabled the impact
      for all the test sets was no more than 0.5-1% (again most at
      the low end).

      Compound inter-intra experiment · 0c917fc9
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      A patch on compound inter-intra prediction.
      
      In compound inter-intra prediction, a new predictor for
      16x16 inter coded MBs are obtained by combining a single
      inter predictor with a 16x16 intra predictor, in a manner
      that the weight varies with distance from the top/left
      boundary. The current search strategy is to combine the best
      inter mode with the best intra mode obtained independently.
      
      Results so far:
      
      derf +0.31%
      yt +0.32%
      std-hd +0.35%
      hd +0.42%
      
      It is conceivable that the results would improve somewhat
      with a more thorough search strategy where all intra modes
      are searched given the best mv, or even a joint search for
      the best mv and the best intra mode.

      New inter mode context · 2669f42b
      Paul Wilkins authored
      This change is a fix / extension of the newbestrefmv
      experiment. As such it is presented without IFDEF.
      
      The change creates a new context for coding inter modes
      in vp9_find_mv_refs(). This replaces the context that
      was previously calculated in vp9_find_near_mvs().
      The new context is unoptimized and not necessarily
      any better at this stage (results pending), but eliminates
      the need for a legacy call to vp9_find_near_mvs().
      Based on numbers from Scott, this could help decode
      speed by several %.
      
      In a later patch I will add support for forward update of
      context (assuming this helps) and refine the context as
      necessary.

      New b-intra mode where direction is contextual · d01357bb
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Preliminary patch on a new 4x4 intra mode B_CONTEXT_PRED where the
      dominant direction from the context is used to encode. Various decoder
      changes are needed to support decoding of B_CONTEXT_PRED in conjunction
      with hybrid transforms since the scan order and tokenization depends on
      the actual direction of prediction obtained from the context. Currently
      the traditional directional modes are used in conjunction with the
      B_CONTEXT_PRED, which also seems to provide the best results.
      
      The gains are small - in the 0.1% range.

      Implement tx_select for superblock encoding. · 1d4fbeb3
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      Also split superblock handling code out of decode_macroblock() into
      a new function decode_superblock(), for easier readability.
      
      Derf +0.05%, HD +0.2%, STDHD +0.1%. We can likely get further gains
      by allowing to select mb_skip_coeff for a subset of the complete SB
      or something along those lines, because although this change allows
      coding smaller transforms for bigger predictors, it increases the
      overhead of coding EOBs to skip the parts where the residual is
      near-zero, and thus the overall gain is not as high as we'd expect.

      Fix variance (signed integer) overflow · 98473443
      James Zern authored
      In the variance calculations the difference is summed and later squared.
      When the sum exceeds sqrt(2^31) the value is treated as a negative when
      it is shifted which gives incorrect results.
      
      To fix this we force the multiplication to be unsigned.
      
      The alternative fix is to shift sum down by 4 before multiplying.
      However that will reduce precision.
      
      For 16x16 blocks the maximum sum is 65280 and sqrt(2^31) is 46340 (and
      change).
      
      This change is based on:

      rd_pick_intra4x4mby_modes / rd_pick_intra8x8mby_modes would both use the
      input value of 'rate_y' in the return calculation. In many places this
      value is uninitialized. Remove the unneeded sum.
