      Add EC_ADAPT experiment for symbol-adaptive entropy coding. · 9ac5508f
      Thomas authored
      This experiment performs symbol-by-symbol statistics
      adaptation for non-binary symbols. It requires DAALA_EC or
      RANS and ANS to be enabled. The adaptation is currently
      based on a simple recursive filter and is taken from
      Daala. It has an adaptation rate dependent on alphabet size,
      taken from Daala. It applies wherever non-binary symbols
      are encoded using Cumulative Probability Functions rather
      than trees.
      
      Where symbols are adapted, forward updates in the compressed
      header are removed.
      
      In the case of RANS coefficient token values are adapted,
      with the exception of the zero token which remains a
      binary symbol. In the case of DAALA_EC other values
      such as inter and intra modes are adapted as CDFs are
      provided in those cases.
      
      The experiment is configured with:
      
      ./configure --enable-experimental --enable-daala-ec --enable-ec-adapt
      
      or
      
      ./configure --enable-experimental --enable-ans --enable-rans \
          --enable-ec-adapt
      
      EC_ADAPT is not currently compatible with tiles.
      
      BDR results on Objective-1-fast give a small loss:
      
      PSNR YCbCr:      0.51%      0.49%      0.48%

      Encode and decode multiple tile groups · 80188d15
      Thomas Davies authored
      This is a manual adaptation of the following commit from aom/master:
      ce12003d
      
      The original commit message:
      
      A tile group is a set of tiles in scan order.
      
      Each tile group has a version of uncompressed and compressed headers,
      identical apart from tile group parameters.
      Encoding probability updates takes account of the number of
      headers to control overheads.
      
      The decoder supports arbitrary numbers of tile groups with
      arbitrary number of tiles. The number of tiles in a TG is
      signalled in the uncompressed header for that TG.
      
      The encoder currently only supports a fixed number
      of TGs (3, when error resilient mode is on) of equal size
      (except possibly for the last one).
      
      The average BDR performnce with 3 tile groups versus
      anchor with error resilient mode and up to 16 tiles is:
      
      NR YCbCr:      3.02%      3.04%      3.05%
      PSNRHVS:      3.09%

      Move CLPF block signals from frame to SB level. · 97535038
      Steinar Midtskogen authored
      These signals were in the uncompressed frame header (as a temporary
      hack), which caused two problems:
      
      * We don't want that header to be duplicated in the slice header
      * It was necessary to signal the number of bits to transmit up front
      
      However, the filter size can be 128x128 which is greater than the SB
      size, and a decoder wouldn't be able to know whether to read a bit or
      not until the final SB of that 128x128 block has been decoded
      (depending on whether the 128x128 is all skip or not).  Therefore the
      signalling was changed for 128x128 blocks so that every top left SB of
      a 128x128 filter block contains a signal regardless of whether the
      block is all skip or not.  Also, all the MB's of 128x128 block are
      filtered even if they are skip MB's.  This gives the signal a purpose
      even when the 128x128 block is all skip, and it also gives a slight
      coding gain as it leaves a way to filter skip blocks, which was
      previously forbidden.

      Enable tile-adaptive restoration · 5cd2ab95
      Debargha Mukherjee authored
      Includes a major refactoring/enhancement to support
      tile-adaptive switchable restoration. The framework can be
      readily extended to add more restoration schemes in the
      future. Also includes various cleanups and fixes.
      
      Specifically the framework allows restoration to be conducted
      on tiles such that each tile can be either left unrestored, or
      use bilateral or wiener filtering.
      
      There is a modest improvemnt in coding efficiency (0.1 - 0.2%).
      
      Further enhancements will be added subsequently to improve coding
      efficiency and complexity.

      Code refactoring on Macros related to ref frame numbers · 1af28f02
      Zoe Liu authored
      We have renamed following Macros to avoid name confusion:
      
      REFS_PER_FRAME --> INTER_REFS_PER_FRAME
      (= ALTREF_FRAME - LAST_FRAME + 1)
      MAX_REF_FRAMES --> TOTAL_REFS_PER_FRAME
      (= ALTREF_FRAME - INTRA_FRAME + 1)
      
      INTER_REFS_PER_FRAME specifies the maximum number of reference frames
      that each Inter frame may use.
      TOTAL_REFS_PER_FRAME is equal to INTER_REFS_PER_FRAME + 1, which
      counts the INTRA_FRAME.
      
      Further, at the encoder side, since REF_FRAMES specifies the maximum
      number of the reference frames that the encoder may store, REF_FRAMES
      is usually larger than INTER_REFS_PER_FRAME. For example, in the
      ext-refs experiment, REF_FRAMES == 8, which allows the encoder to
      store maximum 8 reference frames in the buffer, but
      INTER_REFS_PER_FRAME equals to 6, which allows each Inter frame may
      use up to 6 frames out of the 8 buffered frames as its references.
      Hence, in order to explore the possibility to store more reference
      frames in future patches, we modified a couple of array sizes to
      accomodate the case that the number of buffered reference frames is
      not always equal to the number of the references that are being used
      by each Inter frame.

      This commit makes the encoder to use different frame context index
      for different frame types. In the baseline setting, it sets the
      frame context index of the overlay frame to be different from other
      regular inter frames. In the ext-refs setting, it further allows
      the backward reference frame to use a different index.

      Merge bi-predictive frames to EXT_REFS · 5805a14c
      Zoe Liu authored
      This patch removed the experiment of BIDIR_PRED and merged the feature
      into the experiment of EXT_REFS:
      
      (1) Each frame now has up to 6 reference frames, namely
          LAST_FRAME, LAST2_FRAME, LAST3_FRAME, GOLDEN_FRAME, (forward) and
          BWDREF_FRAME, ALTREF_FRAME (backward);
          LAST4_FRAME has been removed;
      (2) First pass still keeps the 8 updates:
          KF_UPDATE, LF_UPDATE, GF_UPDATE, ARF_UPDATE, OVERLAY_UPDATE, and
          BRF_UPDATE, LAST_BIPRED_UPDATE, BI_PRED_UPDATE;
      (3) show_existing_frame==1 is supported in the experiment of EXT_REFS;
      (4) New encoding modes are added for both single-ref and compound cases,
          through the use of the 2 extra forward references (LAST2 & LAST3)
          and the 1 extra backward reference (BWDREF).

      Make the bi-predictive frame group interval adjustable · e89ca180
      Zoe Liu authored
      This is for the bidir-pred experiment. Previously the length of the
      bi-predictive frame group interval is fixed at 2, i.e. one
      bi-predictive frame may be inserted every other frame. This patch
      makes the length adjustable, i.e. any positive number may be
      specified, but the use of the backward ref will be turned off if the
      bi-predictive frame group interval is larger than the golden frame
      group.
      
      Further, an additional rate factor level has been added:
      INTER_LOW
      , which applies to LAST_BIPRED_UPDATE frames that are not used as
      references.

      Added an experiment "bidir_pred" for backward prediction · cf5083d4
      Zoe Liu authored
      Major parts have been implemented as follows:
      (1) Added BRF_UPDATE, LASTNRF_UPDATE, and NRF_UPDATE in firstpass.c;
      (2) Added the handling for the scenario of
      "cpi->common.show_existing_frame == 1" at the encoder;
      (3) Added a new reference frame of BWDREF_FRAME;
      (4) Have bwd-ref work with upsampled references.
      
      Note that when the experiment of "ext_refs" turned on, this experiment
      will be turned off automatically currently.
      
      RD performance in Overall PSNR has been improved, compared against the
      VP10 baseline:
      
      lowres: Avg -3.312; BDRate -3.154
      derflr: Avg -1.927; BDRate -1.176
      midres: Avg -2.149; BDRate -2.001
      hdres : Avg -0.567; BDRate -0.588
