      Enable variable block size test in non-RD mode decision · 60f9ebc3
      Jingning Han authored
      This is an initial attempt to allow variable block size partition
      in non-RD coding flow. It tests 8x8, 16x16 and 32x32 block size per
      64x64 block, all using non-RD mode decision and the associated rate
      distortion costs from modeling, then selects the best block size to
      encode the entire 64x64 block. Such operations are triggered every
      other 3 frames. The blocks of intermediate frames will reuse the
      collocated block's partition type.
      
      It improves the compression performance by 13.2%. Note that the gains
      are not evenly distributed. For many hard clips, the compression
      performance is improved by 20% to 28%. Local speed test shows that
      it will also increase runtime by 50%, as compared to speed -7. It is
      now enabled in speed -6 setting.

      Minghai Shang authored
            1. Save stats for each spatial layer
            2. Add frame buffer management for svc first pass rc
            3. Set default spatial layer to 1
            4. Flush encoder at the end of stream in test app
      This only supports spatial svc.

      Support for a fast diamond search · bead2e8f
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Adds a fast diamond search which is about 5% faster than FAST_HEX
      with only a 0.1% drop in psnr when turned on for both speeds 5 and 7.
      This search is turned on for speed 7.

      cost_coefs approximation speed up · 9c63e887
      Jim Bankoski authored
      This patch adds a new speed feature which doesn't do the rather
      expensive entropy context lookup or save to the table,  while
      doing costing.
      
      The speed up on desktop36p.y4m is around 10% other clips much less.
      
      On the RTC test set this was + 1% in overall datarate.

      Adds speed 8 to vp9 as reference · f872a98b
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Adds a speed 8 to VP9 where only the nearestmv (0 mv) is searched.
      This seems to be about the same speed as vp8 speed 5.
      
      Adds a new speed feature to disable inter modes based on a mask for
      each blocksize.
      
      Adds code for having lower complexity motion search methods
      in nonrd pick mode function, even though speed 7 still uses DIAMOND
      search for now.
      
      Also uses HEX search for speed 6 rather than FAST_HEX which improves
      psnr by 0.56% without any noticeable speed drop (tested on gipsmotion).

      Adds variance based fixed size partitioning · 10bae825
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Adds a method for determining a fixed size partition based on
      variance of a 64x64 SB. This method is added to rtc speed 6.
      Also fixes a bug in rtc_use_partition() and includes some
      refactoring related to partitioning search, and some cosmetics.
      
      Currently compared to speed 5, the coding efficiency of speed 6
      is -19% and that of speed 7 is -55%, in cbr mode.

      Use fast HEX search in real time mode · 360c80cf
      Yunqing Wang authored
      In good quality mode motion search, the best matches are normally
      found after searching in a large area. In real time mode, to make
      encoding fast, a center-biased fast HEX search is used, which
      converges quickly most of the time. A 4-point diamond search is
      also carried out as the following refining search, which gives more
      precise results, and maintains good motion search quality.
      
      At speed 5, the borg test on rtc set showed an overall PSNR loss of
      0.936%. The encoding speed gain is 4% - 5%.

      Remove unused using_small_partition_info functions · 25479e94
      Jingning Han authored
      This function is deprecated after the re-design of partition search
      that runs big block size, then four-way split, followed by
      rectangular block sizes. This commit removes the related functions.

      Enable encode_breakout in real time encoding · 507fd522
      Yunqing Wang authored
      In real time encoding, we enable encode_breakout to make encoding
      fast. A speed feature "use_encode_breakout" is defined to set
      encode_breakout thresholds for different speeds.
      
      However, currently, static_thresh is an encoder option. The encode_
      breakout can be turned off if user sets static_thresh=0 specifically.
      
      The rtc set borg test result: (need to set --static_thresh=1)
      speed -5, psnr loss -3.543%;
      speed -4, psnr loss -2.358%;
      speed -3, psnr loss -0.771%.
      
      Encoding speed test:
      speed -5, 11% - 60% speedup;
      speed -4, 5.5% - 28% speedup;
      speed -3, 0.8% - 7% speedup.

      Parameter fixes for one-pass non-cbr mode · b2209c33
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Fixes some of the parameters for 1-pass non-cbr mode.
      Also includes some cleanups, inlcuding refactoring of the
      recode_loop options.
      
      Results on derfraw300 improve by about 5-6%, so that the one-pass
      mode is now 13% below the 2-pass mode in speed 0.

      Layer based rate control for CBR mode. · 4864ab21
      Marco Paniconi authored
      This patch adds a buffer-based rate control for temporal layers,
      under CBR mode.
      
      Added vpx_temporal_scalable_patters.c encoder for testing temporal
      layers, for both vp9 and vp8 (replaces the old vp8_scalable_patterns).
      
      Updated datarate unittest with tests for temporal layer rate-targeting.

      One-pass rate control cleanups/fixes/refactoring · 40e63d4b
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Inlcudes a number cleanups:
      1. Moves the one-pass pre-encode parameter setting functions
      to vp9_ratectrl.c
      2. Deprecates per_frame_bandwidth in RATE_CONTROL structure
      3. Removes target_bandwidth in cpi structure since it is not used.
      4. Various renaming of functions
      
      There is no bit-stream change in 2-pass, one-pass cbr and one-pass
      vbr modes.
