      JNT_COMP: reduce context model number · c87b340e
      Cheng Chen authored
      Reduce context model number from 9 to 6.
      Let context be two kinds: two reference frames are equal distance
      or not.
      Also, give equal distance compound weight {9, 7} instead of {8, 8}/16
      
      Reducing context model gives neutral performance.
      New compound weight provides -0.14% gain.

      JNT_COMP: turn off for one_sided_compound · 060e192b
      Cheng Chen authored
      One_sided_compound is less likely to provide gains for jnt_comp.
      Stop jnt_comp search when one_sided_compound is true. It saves coding
      time as well as bit overhead.

      Add the q_segmentation experiment · f624dd5a
      Rostislav Pehlivanov authored
      This experiment implements low-cost delta q signalling on a per-block basis
      for all non-inter frame types, which would allow for more efficient AQ
      which bases its decisions on temporal information.
      
      Based on an Intel proposal from March.

      Add decoder support to ext_skip · f704a1c8
      Zoe Liu authored
      At the frame header level, add the checking on whether an inter-coded
      frame allows the use of 'skip_mode'. At the block level, add the
      decoding of 'skip_mode' for all the blocks if 'skip_mode' is allowed
      for the current frame. If 'skip_mode' is set, no further bit needs to
      read out, and the block is set as:
      - Inter-coded in compound mode;
      - With the nearest forward and backward reference frames;
      - In NEAREST_NEARESTMV mode;
      - In SIMPLE_TRANSLATION motion mode;
      - In COMPOUND_AVERAGE compound type; and
      - Skip set for residual.

      Further work on ext-comp-refs for ref frame coding · fcf5fa27
      Zoe Liu authored
      (1) Work with var-refs to remove redundant bits in ref frame
          coding;
      (2) Add a new uni-directional compound reference pair:
          (LAST_FRAME, LAST3_FRAME);
      (3) Redesign the contexts for encoding uni-directional reference frame
          pairs;
      (4) Use aom_entropy_optimizer to collect stats for all the default
          probability setups related to the coding of reference frames.
      
      Compared against the baseline (default enabled tools excluding ext-tx
      and global-motion for encoder speed concern) with one-sided-compound,
      the coding gain of ext-comp-refs + var-refs - one-sided-compound is:
      
      lowres: avg_psnr -0.385%; ovr_psnr -0.378% ssim -0.344%
      midres: avg_psnr -0.466%; ovr_psnr -0.447% ssim -0.513%
      
      AWCY - High Latency:
         PSNR | PSNR Cb | PSNR Cr | PSNR HVS |    SSIM | MS SSIM | CIEDE 2000
      -0.2758 | -0.1526 | -0.0965 |  -0.2581 | -0.2492 | -0.2534 |    -0.2118
      
      AWCY - Low Latency:

      Compared against the baseline (default enabled tools excluding ext-tx
      and global-motion for encoder speed concern) without

      Add new coding tool of ext-comp-refs · c082bbcb
      Zoe Liu authored
      The tool of ext-comp-refs adds the uni-directional compound reference
      prediction. In details, 3 pairs of uni-direcitonal compound references
      are added for the comp ref prediction:
      (LAST_FRAME, LAST2_FRAME),
      (LAST_FRAME, GOLDEN_FRAME), and
      (BWDREF_FRAME, ALTREF_FRAME).
      
      This new tool of ext-comp-refs will eventually overwrite
      one-side-compound and have the two coding tools to merge to one.
      
      It achieves -0.35 ~ -0.55% coding gains in BDRate, compared against
      AV1 baseline with the default experiments on, but without
      one-sided-compound. It achieves -0.2% ~ -0.3% coding gains when
      one-sided-compound is on. It achieves larger gains on higher
      resolution.

      cb4x4: Move sub-4X4 TX sizes behind CONFIG_CHROMA_2X2. · fe67ed6a
      Timothy B. Terriberry authored
      cb4x4 itself should not require these sizes.
      
      This simplifies compatibility with other experiments, since we can
      first make them work with cb4x4 (which is now on by default), and
      then worry about chroma_2x2 (which is not) in separate steps.
      
      Encoder and decoder output should remain unchanged.

      cb4x4: Fix indexing of tx_size counts. · fe0fb1d9
      Timothy B. Terriberry authored
      Create named constants for the minimum TX_SIZE used in the luma
      plane, as well as the minimum allowed TX_SIZE for which we have to
      explicitly code a selection (i.e., one larger than the minimum luma
      TX_SIZE).
      
      Then, use these constants consistently with tx_size_to_depth() to
      index the tx_size counts in FRAME_COUNTS, and also consistently use
      TX_SIZE named constants to index the tx_size_implied counts.
      
      Failing to index these counts correctly can, e.g., cause tx_mode to
      be chosen incorrectly.

      Palette: use color cache to compress base colors · 33567b21
      hui su authored
      Get a list of palette base colors that are used in the above and
      left blocks, referred to as "color cache". For each cache color,
      signal if it is present in current block's palette, so that we
      don't need to transmit their raw values.

      by 2% on keyframe and 1% overall for the screen_content testset.
