      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.

      Make RECT_TX(>=8x8) work with VAR_TX · a1e48dcc
      Yue Chen authored
      Bitstream syntax:
      For a rectangular inter block, 'rect_tx' flag is sent to indicate if
      the biggest rect tx is used. If no, continue to decode regular
      recursive tx partition.

      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.

      Rectangular transforms 4x8 & 8x4 · e5848dea
      Debargha Mukherjee authored
      Added a new expt rect-tx to be used in conjunction with ext-tx.
      [rect-tx is a temporary config flag and will eventually be
      merged into ext-tx once it works correctly with all other
      experiments].
      
      Added 4x8 and 8x4 tranforms for use initially with rectangular
      sub8x8 y blocks as part of this experiment.
      
      There is about a -0.2% BDRATE improvement on lowres, others pending.
      
      When var-tx is on rectangular transforms are currently not used.
      That will be enabled in a subsequent patch.

      Make superblock size variable at the frame level. · 454989ff
      Geza Lore authored
      The uncompressed frame header contains a bit to signal whether the
      frame is encoded using 64x64 or 128x128 superblocks. This can vary
      between any 2 frames.
      
      vpxenc gained the --sb-size={64,128,dynamic} option, which allows the
      configuration of the superblock size used (default is dynamic). 64/128
      will force the encoder to always use the specified superblock size.
      Dynamic would enable the encoder to choose the sb size for each
      frame, but this is not implemented yet (dynamic does the same as 128
      for now).
      
      Constraints on tile sizes depend on the superblock size, the following
      is a summary of the current bitstream syntax and semantics:
      
      If both --enable-ext-tile is OFF and --enable-ext-partition is OFF:
           The tile coding in this case is the same as VP9. In particular,
           tiles have a minimum width of 256 pixels and a maximum width of
           4096 pixels. The tile width must be multiples of 64 pixels
           (except for the rightmost tile column). There can be a maximum
           of 64 tile columns and 4 tile rows.
      
      If --enable-ext-tile is OFF and --enable-ext-partition is ON:
           Same constraints as above, except that tile width must be
           multiples of 128 pixels (except for the rightmost tile column).
      
      There is no change in the bitstream syntax used for coding the tile
      configuration if --enable-ext-tile is OFF.
      
      If --enable-ext-tile is ON and --enable-ext-partition is ON:
           This is the new large scale tile coding configuration. The
           minimum/maximum tile width and height are 64/4096 pixels. Tile
           width and height must be multiples of 64 pixels. The uncompressed
           header contains two 6 bit fields that hold the tile width/heigh
           in units of 64 pixels. The maximum number of tile rows/columns
           is only limited by the maximum frame size of 65536x65536 pixels
           that can be coded in the bitstream. This yields a maximum of
           1024x1024 tile rows and columns (of 64x64 tiles in a 65536x65536
           frame).
      
      If both --enable-ext-tile is ON and --enable-ext-partition is ON:
           Same applies as above, except that in the bitstream the 2 fields
           containing the tile width/height are in units of the superblock
           size, and the superblock size itself is also coded in the bitstream.
           If the uncompressed header signals the use of 64x64 superblocks,
           then the tile width/height fields are 6 bits wide and are in units
           of 64 pixels. If the uncompressed header signals the use of 128x128
           superblocks, then the tile width/height fields are 5 bits wide and
           are in units of 128 pixels.
      
      The above is a summary of the bitstream. The user interface to vpxenc
      (and the equivalent encoder API) behaves a follows:
      
      If --enable-ext-tile is OFF:
           No change in the user interface. --tile-columns and --tile-rows
           specify the base 2 logarithm of the desired number of tile columns
           and tile rows. The actual number of tile rows and tile columns,
           and the particular tile width and tile height are computed by the
           codec ensuring all of the above constraints are respected.
      
      If --enable-ext-tile is ON, but --enable-ext-partition is OFF:
           No change in the user interface. --tile-columns and --tile-rows
           specify the WIDTH and HEIGHT of the tiles in unit of 64 pixels.
           The valid values are in the range [1, 64] (which corresponds to
           [64, 4096] pixels in increments of 64.
      
      If both --enable-ext-tile is ON and --enable-ext-partition is ON:
           If --sb-size=64 (default):
               The user interface is the same as in the previous point.
               --tile-columns and --tile-rows specify tile WIDTH and HEIGHT,
               in units of 64 pixels, in the range [1, 64] (which corresponds
               to [64, 4096] pixels in increments of 64).
           If --sb-size=128 or --sb-size=dynamic:
               --tile-columns and --tile-rows specify tile WIDTH and HEIGHT,
               in units of 128 pixels in the range [1, 32] (which corresponds
               to [128, 4096] pixels in increments of 128).

      Rename MI_BLOCK_SIZE.* -> MAX_MIB_SIZE.* (MIB is for MI Block).

      There are no functional changes.
      
      This is in preparation for coding the superblock size at the frame
      level, which will require some of these constants to become variables.
      The new names better reflect future semantics, and hence make the code
      clearer.

      EXT_INTER experiment · 1ac85879
      Yue Chen authored
      NEW2MV is enabled, representing a new motion vector predicted from
      NEARMV. It is mostly ported from nextgen, where it was named
      NEW_INTER.
      A few fixes are done for sub8x8 RDO to correct some misused
      mv references in the original patch.
      A 'bug-fix' for encoding complexity is done, reducing the additional
      encoding time from 50% to 20%. In sub8x8 case, the old patch
      did motion search for every interpolation filter (vp9 only
      searches once). This fix also slightly improves the coding gain.
      This experiment has been made compatible with REF_MV and EXT_REFS.
