      Plumb in a "monochrome" flag · e0b15997
      Rupert Swarbrick authored
      This bit appears in the sequence header. At the moment, it does
      nothing, but it will mean that we don't encode (or read) chroma
      planes.
      
      This patch adds the flag to the sequence header, and also adds an
      encoder option (--monochrome) which enables it. At the moment, this
      doesn't do anything except cause the bit to be set correctly in the
      header.

      Add the q_segmentation experiment · f624dd5a
      Rostislav Pehlivanov authored
      This experiment implements low-cost delta q signalling on a per-block basis
      for all non-inter frame types, which would allow for more efficient AQ
      which bases its decisions on temporal information.
      
      Based on an Intel proposal from March.

      Make apply_encoding_flags work when lag_in_frames > 0 · f2e7a397
      Yunqing Wang authored
      av1_apply_encoding_flags() was called in encoder_encode(). If
      lag_in_frames > 0, it wouldn't be called for last several frames
      while flushing the encoder, and thus cpi->ref_frame_flags can not
      be set correctly. This patch fixed the issue by adding an extra
      flag cpi->ext_ref_frame_flags to store the external reference
      frame flag, and pass it to cpi->ref_frame_flags correctly.

      Speed up ref selection by enforcing max 6 frames · f452fdfe
      Zoe Liu authored
      A speedup feature that enforces the maximum number of reference frames
      to evaluate for each arbitrary frame to be 6, as opposed to the maximum
      syntax-allowed number of reference frames which is 7, through the
      following rules:
      
      (1) When all the possible reference frames are availble, we reduce the
          number of reference frames (7) by 1 by removing one reference
          frame;
      (2) Always retain GOLDEN_FARME/ALTEF_FRAME;
      (3) Check the earliest 2 remaining reference frames, and there are two
          options to remove one reference frame:
          (a) Remove the one with the lower quality factor; Otherwise if
          both frames have been coded at the same quality level, remove the
          earliest reference frame;
          (b) Always remove the earliest reference frame.
          Currently set option (a).
      
      This patch has demonstrated an encoder speedup of ~8.5%. It is under
      speed2 with "selective_ref_frame >= 2". (May be considered to move
      to speed1 later once the coding performance impact is evaluated
      further.)
      
      Using the following configure setups, the coding performance has been
      dropped on Google test sets (50 frames) in BDRate by ~0.2% for lowres
      and by ~0.1% for midres:
      --enable-experimental --disable-convolve-round --disable-ext-partition
      --disable-ext-partition-types --disable-txk-sel --disable-txm

      Update the encoder flags for reference frames using and updating · 9a50fec3
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Updated the encoder flags for externally setting reference frames using
      and updating to include latest changes in AV1.
      
      1. For what reference frames to use, always initilize
      cpi->ref_frame_flags with AOM_REFFRAME_ALL at the beginning of encoding
      a frame. The internal ref_frame_flags starts from external flags. Added
      AOM_EFLAG_NO_REF_LAST2 and AOM_EFLAG_NO_REF_LAST3 for LAST2 and LAST3.
      
      2. For what reference frames to update, added ext_refresh_bwd_ref_frame
      and ext_refresh_alt2_ref_frame for BWD and ALT2. Also, removed
      AOM_EFLAG_FORCE_GF and AOM_EFLAG_FORCE_ARF since these are never
      actually used. They can be added back if needed later.

      Allow to disable the probability update · 0e141b56
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Added the function of allowing to disable the probability update while
      needed. This would be needed while encoding in multiple tiles, and
      enabling/disabling probability update can be set separately for every
      individual tile.

      Correct token allocation size for tiles · e39b3b8b
      Yaowu Xu authored
      With --enable-ext-partition, it is possible to have superblock size at
      both 64x64 and 128x128. But MAX_SB_SIZE_LOG2 is defined to be 7, i.e.
      128x128 size. In get_token_alloc(), the token count for a tile or a
      frame is always computed based on "tokens/superblock * number of
      superblocks", so it should use the actual superblock size, instead of
      128x128.
      
      The segfault in #988 is a result when every tile is defined at one
      single superblock of 64x64, the token size computation for each tile
      was assuming it is 128x128, resulting 4x overestimate of the token
      count for every tile. This caused the pointer for many tiles to go
      beyond the allocated token arrary, which is correctly allocated at
      frame level.

      Simplify the search in pickrst.c · 1a96c3f5
      Rupert Swarbrick authored
      The end results should be essentially the same, except hopefully a
      little better because the previous code got the costing slightly
      wrong if there were multiple tiles.
      
      The code was doing something quite complicated to search for the best
      restoration types; this patch makes it much simpler. Basically,
      av1_pick_filter_restoration loops over the planes in the image. For
      each plane, it loops over the possible restoration types, calling
      search_rest_type for each one.
      
      search_rest_type iterates over the restoration units in the image,
      resetting the current context on tile boundaries and calling
      search_<rest_type> for each restoration unit.
      
      The search_norestore function just computes the SSE error with no
      restoration. The search_wiener and search_sgrproj functions compute
      the best set of coefficients and then the resulting SSE error with
      those coefficients (ignoring the bit cost, so the result can be
      re-used for switchable restoration).
      
      In all cases but search_norestore, the search function has to decide
      what restoration type is best for each restoration unit. For example,
      search_wiener could choose to enable or disable Wiener filtering on
      this unit.
      
      Eventually, search_rest_type calculates the RDCOST after summing bit
      rates and SSE errors over the restoration units. This cost gets
      returned to av1_pick_filter_restoration which can then choose the best
      frame-level restoration type.

      FRAME_SUPERRES: Rework to use scale factor of 8/D · de71d142
      Urvang Joshi authored
      Earlier, the superres scale was in the form of:
      N/16, where N ranged from 8 to 16.
      
      We change this to the form:
      8/D, where D ranges from 8 to 16.
      
      This helps on the decoder side, by making it possible to work on 8x8
      blocks at a time.

      MAX_TILE: Allow list of tile widths/heights · 26ad0b22
      Dominic Symes authored
      The aomenc API is modified to allow --tile_width and --tile_height to take a list of sizes.
      For example, --tile_width=2,3 will give tiles of widths 2,3,2,3,... until the image width
      is exhausted. --tile_width=2 will still work to gives tiles of width 2.

      Deduplicate use_reference_buffer/frame_id_numbers_present_flag · 5e70a114
      David Barker authored
      These two flags serve essentially the same purpose, so we can
      simplify down to just having one flag. Since the
      frame_id_numbers_present_flag is older and listed in the
      reference-buffer design doc, this is the one we'll keep.
      
      Note that, previously, frame_id_numbers_present_flag was only
      sent when CONFIG_OBU was enabled - otherwise it was always set
      to 1. On the other hand, use_reference_buffer was always signalled
      so that allowed us to disable frame ids even without CONFIG_OBU.
      
      In order to keep the ability to disable frame IDs without
      CONFIG_OBU, we send a "real" sequence header (ie, with the same
      data as in CONFIG_OBU) in-line within the uncompressed header.
      This is sent every keyframe and every intra-only frame, just
      as the use_reference_buffer flag was before this patch.

      - max_tile now works with the depenedent horizontal tiles experiment
      - additional checking added to ensure maximum number of rows/columns <= 64
      - one fix to the tile group code for when the number of tiles is not a power of two
