      Add a reset to rc tracking for dropped frames · 21db24ef
      Yaowu Xu authored
      VP9/DatarateTestVP9Large.ChangingDropFrameThresh/[34] fails post the
      merge of commit#ffa06b37. This commit adds reset of rc tracking info
      when frame is dropped, and fixes the causes of the bad interaction
      between the tests and the previous commit.

      Combine fdct8x8 and quantization process · c6908fd5
      Jingning Han authored
      This commit reworks the forward transform and quantization process
      for 8x8 block coding. It combines the two operations in a single
      function to save a store/load stage of the original transform
      coefficients. Overall the speed -6 is slightly faster (around 1%
      range). The compression performance of speed -6 is improved by
      3.4%.

      Prevent severe rate control errors in CBR mode · ffa06b37
      Yaowu Xu authored
      In rare cases, the interaction between rate correction factor and Q
      choices may cause severe oscillating frame sizes that are way off
      target bandwidth. This commit adds tracking of rate control results
      for last two frames, and use the information to prevent oscillating
      Q choices.

      Modify active_worst_quality setting for one pass CBR. · b660f723
      Marco authored
      Current setting had active_worst_quality set too high (close to worst_quality)
      for first frame(s) following first key frame. This changes that to be somewhat
      more aggressive in allowing active_worst_quality to be lower following key frame.
      
      Also remove the 4/5 reduction in active_worst for key frame as
      this should be set by the user qp_max setting.

        int64_t projected_dist_sb;

      them. However, those values are updated and used immediately, and
      therefore can be removed. This patch cleaned up the code and

      adapt the adjustment limit for rate correction factor in RTC mode · 9f79259e
      Yaowu Xu authored
      Rate correction factor is used to correct the estimated rate for any
      given quantizer, and feeds into rate control for quantizer selection.
      We make use of the actual bits used to calculate this rate correction
      factor with an adjustment limit to prevent over-adjustment.
      
      This commit adapts the adjustment limit to the difference between the
      estimated bits and the actual bits, allows the adjustment limit to vary
      between 0.125 (when estimate is close to actual) and 0.625 (when there
      is >10X factor off between estimated and actual bits). By doing this,
      the commit appears to have largely corrected two observed issues:
      1. Adjustment is too slow when the actual bits used is way off from
      estimate due to the small adjustment limit.
      2. Extreme oscillating quantizer choices due to the feedback loop.

      Use reconstructed pixels for intra prediction · e717d22b
      Jingning Han authored
      This commit makes the speed -6 and above use the reconstructed
      boundary pixels for precise intra prediction. This allows more
      intra prediction modes to be tested in the non-RD coding process.
      
      Enabling horizontal and vertical intra prediction modes can
      improve the speed -6 compression performance for rtc set
      by 0.331%.

      Use normal rate_correction_factor for gf in CBR mode · f2b978e8
      Yaowu Xu authored
      I0c5f010 changed to allow update golden reference buffer in CBR mode,
      this commit changes the use of rate_correction_factor for those frames
      to be aligned with the new usage. This commit attempts to solve two
      issues:
      
      a. Initialization of rate correction factor for Golden Frame
      Prior to this patch, even the regular inter frame has been update
      the rate correction factor based on content and encoding results,
      the first golden frame would still use the ininitialized value
      that can be way off.
      
      b. Allowing rate correction factor update to be slightly faster
      Prior to this patch, when the rate correction factor is off, the
      update to the factor is too slow, the factor could not get close
      to a semi-correct value even after many frames.
      
      The commit helps all clips in psnr/ssim metric, but especially to
      a few clip in RTC set that rate correction was way off. For example
      thaloundeskmtgvga gained about .5dB for both overall/average psnr.

      Modify the frame context memory deallocation · 12284334
      Yunqing Wang authored
      This patch was to fix the vpxdec fuzzing3 test failure. When an
      error occurs, setjmp() is invoked, which calls the decoder
      removing routine. In multiple thread situation, other threads
      could try to access the frame context memory that is already
      deallocated, thus causing a segfault.
      
      An invalid unit test was added for this issue.

      Add intra complexity and brightness weight to first pass. · 5e935126
      Paul Wilkins authored
      The aim of this patch is to apply a positive weighting to
      frames that have a significant number of blocks that are
      of low spatial complexity and are dark. The rationale behind
      this is that artifacts tend to be more visible in such frames.
      
      In this patch the weight is only applied in regard to the distribution
      of bits between frames. Hence if all the frames share similar
      characteristics (as is the case for most of our short test clips) there
      will be little or no net effect.
      
      However, the effect can be seen on some longer form test content.
      
      For example Tears of steel baseline test:
      2323.09 Kbit/s opsnr 39.915 ssim 74.729
      With this patch:-
      2213.34 Kbit/s opsnr 39.963 ssim 74.808
      (Sligtly better metrics and about 5% smaller)
      
      The weighting may well need some further tuning along side changes
      to the aq modes.

      -6 by 3.10% in PSNR and 5.25% in SSIM. Speed wise, about 1% faster
      in both settings at high bit-rates.

      Skip ref frame mode search conditioned on predicted mv residuals · 1434f769
      Jingning Han authored
      This commit makes the RTC coding mode to conditionally skip the
      reference frame mode search, when the predicted motion vector of
      the current reference frame gives more than two times sum of
      absolute difference compared to that of other reference frames.
      
      It reduces the runtim by 1% - 4% for speed -5 and -6. The average
      compression performance is improved by about 0.1% in both settings.
      
      It is of particular benefit to light change scenarios. The
      compression performance of test clip mmmovingvga.y4m is improved by
      6.39% and 15.69% at high bit rates for speed -5 and -6, respectively.
