      Use 256-byte aligned filter tables · 6fd7dd1a
      John Koleszar authored
      This avoids duplicating all the filters twice. Includes fixups to the
      convolve routines and associated tests to make this work.

      Spatial resamping of ZEROMV predictors · eb939f45
      John Koleszar authored
      This patch allows coding frames using references of different
      resolution, in ZEROMV mode. For compound prediction, either
      reference may be scaled.
      
      To test, I use the resize_test and enable WRITE_RECON_BUFFER
      in vp9_onyxd_if.c. It's also useful to apply this patch to
      test/i420_video_source.h:
      
        --- a/test/i420_video_source.h
        +++ b/test/i420_video_source.h
        @@ -93,6 +93,7 @@ class I420VideoSource : public VideoSource {
      
           virtual void FillFrame() {
             // Read a frame from input_file.
        +    if (frame_ != 3)
             if (fread(img_->img_data, raw_sz_, 1, input_file_) == 0) {
               limit_ = frame_;
             }
      
      This forces the frame that the resolution changes on to be coded
      with no motion, only scaling, and improves the quality of the
      result.

      Refactor inter recon functions to support scaling · 6a4f708c
      John Koleszar authored
      Ensure that all inter prediction goes through a common code path
      that takes scaling into account. Removes a bunch of duplicate
      1st/2nd predictor code. Also introduces a 16x8 mode for 8x8
      MVs, similar to the 8x4 trick we were doing before. This has an
      unexpected effect with EIGHTTAP_SMOOTH, so it's disabled in that
      case for now.

      Faster convolve8_avg. · 094e2572
      Christian Duvivier authored
      Implement convolve8_avg using common functions which are already optimized
      instead of using more obscure ones which have only C versions. Encoder
      overall speed-up of about 12%.

      Convert subpixel filters to use convolve framework · 7a07eea1
      John Koleszar authored
      Update the code to call the new convolution functions to do subpixel
      prediction rather than the existing functions. Remove the old C and
      assembly code, since it is unused. This causes a 50% performance
      reduction on the decoder, but that will be resolved when the asm for
      the new functions is available.
      
      There is no consensus for whether 6-tap or 2-tap predictors will be
      supported in the final codec, so these filters are implemented in
      terms of the 8-tap code, so that quality testing of these modes
      can continue. Implementing the lower complexity algorithms is a
      simple exercise, should it be necessary.
      
      This code produces slightly better results in the EIGHTTAP_SMOOTH
      case, since the filter is now applied in only one direction when
      the subpel motion is only in one direction. Like the previous code,
      the filtering is skipped entirely on full-pel MVs. This combination
      seems to give the best quality gains, but this may be indicative of a
      bug in the encoder's filter selection, since the encoder could
      achieve the result of skipping the filtering on full-pel by selecting
      one of the other filters. This should be revisited.
      
      Quality gains on derf positive on almost all clips. The only clip
      that seemed to be hurt at all datarates was football
      (-0.115% PSNR average, -0.587% min). Overall averages 0.375% PSNR,
      0.347% SSIM.

      Add 8-tap generic convolver · 5ca6a366
      John Koleszar authored
      This commit introduces a new convolution function which will be used to
      replace the existing subpixel interpolation functions. It is much the
      same as the existing functions, but allows for changing the filter
      kernel on a per-pixel basis, and doesn't bake in knowledge of the
      filter to be applied or the size of the resulting block into the
      function name.
      
      Replacing the existing subpel filters will come in a later commit.
