      RTCD defs: Remove empty specialize statements once and for all. · 5ddac0aa
      Urvang Joshi authored
      A similar cleanup happened before, but the empty statements have since
      reappeared. I added a check in 'specialize' subroutine to die whenever
      such an empty specialize call is found, so that config+make would fail.

      Fix two bugs in highbitdepth self-guided filter · 7e08ac3f
      David Barker authored
      This filter was temporarily removed due to test failures.
      This patch reintroduces the filter and fixes two bugs:
      
      * The test cases would occasionally segfault on x86, since
        the highbd filter requires its inputs to be aligned to
        16 bytes. This will always be true when used on real videos,
        so adjust the test cases to match.
      
      * The function calc_block was incorrect for bit_depth > 8,
        due to passing an incorrect argument to _mm_srl_epi32().
        This was the cause of the original test failures.

      Merge dering/clpf rdo and filtering · a9d41e88
      Steinar Midtskogen authored
      * Dering and clpf were merged into a single pass.
      * 32x32 and 128x128 filter block sizes for clpf were removed.
      * RDO for dering and clpf merged and improved:
        - "0" no longer required to be in the strength selection
        - Dering strength can now be 0, 1 or 2 bits per block

      Replace one self guided filter with highpass · b7bb0976
      Debargha Mukherjee authored
      Adds an option controlled by a macro to replace one of
      the guided filters in the self-guided tool with a simple
      bandpass filtered version generated with a 3x3 kernel.
      By default the macro USE_HIGHPASS_IN_SGRPROJ is 0 (turned
      off), that defaults us to the dual self-guided filter.
      When the macro is turned on, the larger radius guided
      filter is replaced by a simpler filter that is much faster.
      
      Results (if USE_HIGHPASS_IN_SGRPROJ is on vs. off):
      lowres: performance drop by +0.14% (BDRATE)
      midres: performance drop by +0.27% (BDRATE)
      
      Further experiments on this variation of guided filters is
      pending.

      Make encoder use vectorized self-guided filter · 506eb723
      David Barker authored
      By rearranging the code in restoration.c, we can allow the
      encoder to use the SSE4.1 version of the self-guided filter
      while picking the loop-restoration filter.
      
      This also helps us prepare for adding a highbitdepth SSE4.1
      version of the self-guided filter.
      
      No effect on encoder output, but gives an end-to-end speedup
      of 1-2%.

      Add SSE2 vectorized warp filter for lowbd · d5dfa96e
      David Barker authored
      End-to-end speed improvements: (measured on tempete_cif.y4m,
      20 frames for encoder and all 260 frames for decoder)
      
      * GLOBAL_MOTION encoder: ~10% faster
      * GLOBAL_MOTION decoder: 100-200% faster depending on bitrate
      * WARPED_MOTION encoder: ~2.5% faster
      * WARPED_MOTION decoder: ~20-40% faster depending on bitrate
      
      The improvement in the GLOBAL_MOTION decoder is particularly
      large because its runtime is dominated by calls to warp_plane().
      
      This introduces minor changes to the output of the warp filter,
      but these should be rare.
