      New experiment DIST_8x8 · b7b60c57
      Yushin Cho authored
      A framework for computing a distortion at 8x8 luma block level
      during RDO-based mode decision search. New 8x8 distortion metric can
      be plugged in by way of this tool.
      
      Existing daala_dist now uses this experiment as well.
      Other possible applications that can make use of this experiment would be
      a distortion meric, which should apply at 8x8 pixels such as PSNR-HVS, SSIM, or etc.
      
      A rd_cost for final coding mode decision for a super block is
      computed for a partition size 8x8 or larger. For a block larger than 8x8,
      a distortion of each 8x8 block is independently computed then summed up.
      
      The rd_cost for 8x8 block with new 8x8 distortion metric is computed
      only when the mode decision of its sub8x8 blocks are completed.
      However, MSE distortion metric is used with sub8x8 mode decision. Thus,
      early termination is also determined with the MSE based rd_cost.
      Because the best rd_cost (i.e. the reference rd_cost) during sub8x8 prediction
      or sub8x8 tx is based on new 8x8 distortion while each sub8x8 uses MSE,
      the existing early termination cannot be used (And this can be the one of possible reason
      for the BD-Rate change with this revision).
      
      For a sub8x8 prediction, prediction mode for each sub8x8 block of a 8x8 block is
      decided with existing MSE and then av1_dist_8x8() is applied to the 8x8 pixels.
      (There is also av1_dist_8x8_diff, which can input diff signal directly)
      
      For a sub8x8 tx in a block larger than 8x8, instead of computing MSE distortion for
      each sub8x8 tx block, we wait until all sub8x8 tx blocks are encoded before av1_dist_8x8()
      is applied to 8x8 pixels.
      
      Sub8x8 prediction and transformas were most of tricky parts in this change.
      Two kind of distortions, for a) predicted pixels and b) decoded pixels
      (i.e. predicted + possible reconstructed residue), are always computed during RDO.
      In order to access those two signals a) and b) for a 8x8 block after
      its sub8x8 mode decision is finished, a) and b) need be properly stored for later retrieval.
      
      The CB4X4 makes the task of accessing a) and b) signals for sub8x8 block further difficult,
      since the intermediate data (i.e. a and/or b) for sub8x8 block
      are not easily accessible outside of current partition unless reconstruced
      with decided coding modes.

      Alex Converse authored
      This reverts commit 1b5328e0.
      
      This commit has some pretty negative consequences with block copy. I
      need to be able to force block copy on for arbitrary sequences while it
      is still in development, and I need to be able to keep the palette
      enable status between block copy and non-block copy runs.
      
      Change If815a1eff2f9419117477f14cda143dd669c87c6 will prevent
      allow_screen_content_tools from getting clobbered and still allow us to

      aomenc: remove config control of "allow_screen_content_tools" · 1b5328e0
      hui su authored
      Always let the encoder decide if "allow_screen_content_tools" should be set.
      
      -The screen content detector(is_screen_content()) works fairly well.
      
      -Keeping the config control may lead to mismatches. For example, user
      may encode the 1st frame with the flag on, then turn the flag off for
      the 2nd frame via config control. On the decoder side, the flag is on
      for both frames, because the flag is only transmitted in the header of
      all-intra frame, i.e. the 1st frame in this example.

      Urvang Joshi authored
      Before this, this function was copied-and-edited from
      av1_build_inter_predictors_sby() and av1_build_inter_predictors_sbuv().
      Also, some places used sb() one directly (like rdopt.c), while others used
      sby() and sbuv() separately (like encodeframe.c --> encode_superblock()).
      
      This was prone to errors, if someone mistakenly modified only one/two of
      the 3 functions.
      
      Now, we just reuse sby() and sbuv() functions in sb().
      
      Verified that there's no change in output.

      ext-partition-types: Add 4:1 partitions · 93c39e91
      Rupert Swarbrick authored
      This patch adds support for 4:1 rectangular blocks to various common
      data arrays, and adds new partition types to the EXT_PARTITION_TYPES
      experiment which will use them.
      
      This patch has the following restrictions, which can be lifted in
      future patches:
      
        * ext-partition-types is incompatible with fp_mb_stats and supertx
          for the moment
      
        * Currently only 32x32 superblocks can use the new partition types
      
      There's a slightly odd restriction about when we allow
      PARTITION_HORZ_4 or PARTITION_VERT_4. Since these both live in the
      EXT_PARTITION_TYPES CDF, read_partition() can only return them if both
      has_rows and has_cols is true. This means that at least half of the
      width and height of the block must be visible. It might be nice to
      relax that restriction but that would imply a change to how we encode
      partition types, which seems already to be in a state of flux, so
      maybe it's better to wait until that has settled down.

      Fix daala-dist for var-tx · 0474912c
      Yushin Cho authored
      The var-tx has its own suite of tx size/type RD search functions,
      which recursively split the partition into square tx blocks.
      
      The Daala-dist requires access to 8x8 pixels (both decoded and predicted)
      since it measures the distortion for multiple of a 8x8 pixels.
      Thus, if tx block is smaller than 8x8, it waits until all of sub8x8 blocks
      are RD searched (with MSE) then replaces the MSE of 8x8 pixels with
      daala-dist's calculated distortion for 8x8 pixels.
      
      It is also applied to luma pixels only.

      cb4x4: Move sub-4X4 block sizes behind chroma flags. · 81ec2619
      Timothy B. Terriberry authored
      cb4x4 itself should not require these sizes.
      
      This simplifies compatibility with other experiments, since we can
      first make them work with cb4x4 (which is now on by default), and
      then worry about chroma_sub8x8 and chroma_2x2 (which is not) in
      separate steps.
      
      Encoder and decoder output should remain unchanged.

      Use last_show_frame in use_prev_frame_mvs calc · 2b4ea11a
      Fergus Simpson authored
      Without tempmv-signaling configured, using the previous frame's MVs
      requires that the last frame was a show frame. With tempmv-signaling
      configured, cm->show_last_frame is not checked when calculating
      use_prev_frame_mvs. This patch adds that check and resolves mismatches
      seen with random resizing and random superres.
      
      Includes a couple fixes too - cm's last_width, last_height, and
      last_show_frame were updated under different conditions. Now they're all
      updated at the same time.

      [CFL] RDO Loop Rework · 14fc5045
      Luc Trudeau authored
      CfL performs an extra loop iteration during luma mode selection. Recent
      changes have broken the extra iteration. Remove previous approach.
      
      New approach adds the extra iteration right before uv parameter
      selection. Interesting fact, If the best luma intra mode already has
      worse RD performance than the best inter mode found so far (if any),
      then the entire chroma intra search is skipped, including the extra 
      iteration.

      Add new coding tool of ext-comp-refs · c082bbcb
      Zoe Liu authored
      The tool of ext-comp-refs adds the uni-directional compound reference
      prediction. In details, 3 pairs of uni-direcitonal compound references
      are added for the comp ref prediction:
      (LAST_FRAME, LAST2_FRAME),
      (LAST_FRAME, GOLDEN_FRAME), and
      (BWDREF_FRAME, ALTREF_FRAME).
      
      This new tool of ext-comp-refs will eventually overwrite
      one-side-compound and have the two coding tools to merge to one.
      
      It achieves -0.35 ~ -0.55% coding gains in BDRate, compared against
      AV1 baseline with the default experiments on, but without
      one-sided-compound. It achieves -0.2% ~ -0.3% coding gains when
      one-sided-compound is on. It achieves larger gains on higher
      resolution.
