      Adjustment to boost calculation in two pass. · b095d9df
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Calculate a minimum intra value to be used in determining the
      IIratio scores used in two pass, second pass.
      
      This is to make sure sections that are low complexity" in the
      intra domain are still boosted appropriately for KF/GF/ARF.
      
      For now I have commented out the Q based adjustment of
      KF boost.

      Use the fast quantizer for inter mode selection · 516ea846
      Scott LaVarnway authored
      Use the fast quantizer for inter mode selection and the
      regular quantizer for the rest of the encode for good quality,
      speed 1.  Both performance and quality were improved.  The
      quality gains will make up for the quality loss mentioned in
      I9dc089007ca08129fb6c11fe7692777ebb8647b0.

      abstract apply_temporal_filter · 092b5bef
      Johann authored
      allow for optimized versions of apply_temporal_filter
      (now vp8_apply_temporal_filter_c)
      
      the function was previously declared as static and appears to have been
      inlined. with this change, that's no longer possible. performance takes
      a small hit.
      
      the declaration for vp8_cx_temp_filter_c was moved to onyx_if.c because
      of a circular dependency. for rtcd, temporal_filter.h holds the
      definition for the rtcd table, so it needs to be included by onyx_int.h.
      however, onyx_int.h holds the definition for VP8_COMP which is needed
      for the function prototype. blah.

      Improve MV prediction accuracy to achieve performance gain · c3bbb291
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Add vp8_mv_pred() to better predict starting MV for NEWMV
      mode in vp8_rd_pick_inter_mode(). Set different search
      ranges according to MV prediction accuracy, which improves
      encoder performance without hurting the quality. Also,
      as Yaowu suggested, using diamond search result as full
      search starting point and therefore adjusting(reducing)
      full search range helps the performance.

      Relax rate control for last few frames · 513f8e68
      Paul Wilkins authored
      VBR rate control can become very noisy for the last few frames.
      If there are a few bits to spare or a small overshoot then the
      target rate and hence quantizer may start to fluctuate wildly.
      
      This patch prevents further adjustment of the active Q limits for
      the last few frames.
      
      Patch also removes some redundant variables and makes one small bug fix.

      Tuning for the more exact quantizer. · 6adbe090
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Small changes to the default zero bin and rounding tables.
      Though the tables are currently the same for the Y1 and Y2 cases
      I have left them as separate tables in case we want to tune this later.
      
      There is now some adjustment of the zbin based on the prediction mode.
      Previously this was restricted to an adjustment for gf/arf 0,0 MV.
      
      The exact quantizer now marginal outperforms and is the default.
      
      The overall average gain is about 0.5%

      improve average framerate calculation · f7e187d3
      John Koleszar authored
      Change Ice204e86 identified a problem with bitrate undershoot due to
      low precision in the timestamps passed to the library. This patch
      takes a different approach by calculating the duration of this frame
      and passing it to the library, rather than using a fixed duration
      and letting the library average it out with higher precision
      timestamps. This part of the fix only applies to vpxenc.
      
      This patch also attempts to fix the problem for generic applications
      that may have made the same mistake vpxenc did. Instead of
      calculating this frame's duration by the difference of this frame's
      and the last frame's start time, we use the end times instead. This
      allows the framerate calculation to scavenge "unclaimed" time from
      the last frame. For instance:
      
        start |  end  | calculated duration

      Add half-pixel variance RTCD functions · 209d82ad
      John Koleszar authored
      NEON has optimized 16x16 half-pixel variance functions, but they
      were not part of the RTCD framework. Add these functions to RTCD,
      so that other platforms can make use of this optimization in the
      future and special-case ARM code can be removed.
      
      A number of functions were taking two variance functions as
      parameters. These functions were changed to take a single
      parameter, a pointer to a struct containing all the variance
      functions for that block size. This provides additional flexibility
      for calling additional variance functions (the half-pixel special
      case, for example) and by initializing the table for all block sizes,
      we don't have to construct this function pointer table for each
      macroblock.

      Convert [4][4] matrices to [16] arrays. · 8f75ea6b
      Timothy B. Terriberry authored
      Most of the code that actually uses these matrices indexes them as
       if they were a single contiguous array, and coverity produces
       reports about the resulting accesses that overflow the static
       bounds of the first row.
      This is perfectly legal in C, but converting them to actual [16]
       arrays should eliminate the report, and removes a good deal of
       extraneous indexing and address operators from the code.

      Move firstpass motion map to stats packet · bb7dd5b1
      John Koleszar authored
      The first implementation of the firstpass motion map for motion
      compensated temporal filtering created a file, fpmotionmap.stt,
      in the current working directory. This was not safe for multiple
      encoder instances. This patch merges this data into the first pass
      stats packet interface, so that it is handled like the other
      (numerical) firstpass stats.
      
      The new stats packet is defined as follows:
          Numerical Stats (16 doubles) -- 128 bytes
          Motion Map                   -- 1 byte / Macroblock
          Padding                      -- to align packet to 8 bytes
      
      The fpmotionmap.stt file can still be generated for debugging
      purposes in the same way that the textual version of the stats
      are available (defining OUTPUT_FPF in firstpass.c)

      change to make use of more trellis quantization · 2e53e9e5
      Yaowu Xu authored
      when a subsequent frame is encoded as an alt reference frame, it is
      unlikely that any mb in current frame will be used as reference for
      future frames, so we can enable quantization optimization even when
      the RD constant is slightly rate-biased. The change has an overall
      benefit between 0.1% to 0.2% bit savings on the test sets based on
      vpxssim scores.

      Add simple version of activity masking. · 8d0f7a01
      Timothy B. Terriberry authored
      This uses MB variance to change the RDO weight for mode decision
       and quantization.
      Activity is normalized against the average for the frame, which is
       currently tracked using feed-forward statistics.
      This could also be used to adjust the quantizer for the entire
       frame, but that requires more extensive rate control changes.
      This does not yet attempt to adapt the quantizer within the frame,
       but the signaling cost means that will likely only be useful at
       very high rates.

      Make this/next iiratio unsigned. · cd475da8
      John Koleszar authored
      This patch addresses issue #79, which is a regression since commit
      28de670c "Fix RD bug." If the coded error value is zero, the iiratio
      calculation effectively multiplies by 1000000 by the
      DOUBLE_DIVIDE_CHECK macro. This can result in a value larger than
      INT_MAX, giving a negative ratio. Since the error values are
      conceptually unsigned (though they're stored in a double) this patch
      makes the iiratio values unsigned, which allows the clamping to work
      as expected.
