      Implement a new rate control system · 002e7b7a
      Rostislav Pehlivanov authored
      This commit implements a new rate control system which was ported from
      Daala's rate control system (which was based off of Theora's rate
      control system) to the encoder. Its aim is to address the weaknesses of
      the current rate control system and eventually serve as its replacement.
      
      This is still work in progress. So far this commit only implements
      support for single pass encoding for constant quality and bitrate
      targeting.
      Additional commits which implement two-pass support and the rest to
      match the feature set of the current rate control system are coming
      soon.
      
      The rate control system hasn't been fully tuned (and will likely need
      additional tuning as the encoder's development progresses) and does
      contain some "hacks", to convert the quality to a quantizer value
      (empirical) and to tweak the quantizer in between golden frames (which
      uses some code from the current rate control system as well as code
      which attempts to model what that code does), the latter of which is
      only in the constant quality codepath.
      
      Bitrate targeting works much better than the current rate control
      system's targeting and will actually closely match the rate specified by
      the user without the current rate control system's bursty behaviour.

      Palette code: add comments and rename some variables. · 23a61117
      Urvang Joshi authored
      - Added comments for some tables and #defines for clarity.
      - Renamed some variables to ensure we use "color_index" instead of
      "color" for palette color index related variables.

      Add unpoison_partition_ctx experiment · 55c6bdeb
      Alex Converse authored
      At the edges of the picture only a subset of partitions are legal. Add
      new contexts for these borders so they don't distort the probabilities of
      the interior of the image where all partitions are legal.
      
      Only include one context for each block size of each border direction
      because so few blocks fall into these contexts to begin with.

      Add UV wiener loop restoration · a43a2d98
      Debargha Mukherjee authored
      Enables Wiener based loop restoration only for the UV
      frames. The selfguided and domaintranform filters do not
      work very well for UV components, hence they are disabled.
      For each UV frame a single set of wiener parameters are
      sent. They are applied tile-wise, but all tiles use the
      same parameters.
      
      BDRATE (Global PSNR) results:
      -----------------------------
      lowres: -1.266% (up from -0.666%, good improvement)
      midres: -1.815% (up from -1.792%, tiny improvement)
      
      Tiling on UV components will be explored subsequently.

      Simplify buffer management for self-guided restoration filter · 3a0df186
      David Barker authored
      * Remove some unused variables
      * Reduce need for casts by typing intermediate buffers appropriately
      * Avoid copying data which is never modified; use the original data
        instead.
      * Reduce number of intermediate buffers required, saving allocations
        of 576KiB in the decoder and ~1MiB in the encoder
      
      No effect on performance

      Add an experiment to disable lpf on tile boundaries · 7386eda0
      Ryan Lei authored
      This commit adds a new experiment to allow disabling of loop filtering
      on tile boundaries. It is implemented by adding a syntax field
      "loopfilter_across_tiles_enabled" into the uncompressed frame header. 
      If it is set to 0, decoder and encoder will disables loop filtering for
      block edges that are also tile boundaries.

      Default MTU size is 0, which implies a fixed number
      of tile groups. MTU matching overrides fixed tile

      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.
