      Dual pred flag · 8266abfe
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Further changes to make experiments with the context
      used for coding the dual pred flag easier.
      
      Current best performing method tested on derf is a two
      element context based on reference frame. I also tried
      various combinations of mode and reference frame as
      shown in commented out case using up to 6 contexts.
      
      Derf +0.26 overall psnr +0.15% ssim vs original method.

      Paul Wilkins authored
      Further use of common prediction functions and experiments
      with alternate contexts based on mode and reference frame.

      gives +0.18% Overall Psnr and +0.08 SSIM

      Fix dual prediction recode loop. · 915f13bd
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      We should only change the dual prediction mode if we actually entered
      the recode branch. Else, it may potentially undo beneficial changes
      to the dual prediction mode in the first encode iteration.

      Some conditions were conditional under a threshold, whereas they should
      always execute. Also, some conditions were testing an array instead of
      the values within it.

      Move update of ref frame probabilities in encode loop. · e1050bd3
      Paul Wilkins authored
      The existing code updated the reference frame probabilities before
      the test to evaluate the impact of using updated probabilities
      in vp8_estimate_entropy_savings().
      
      The estimate of cost and savings is still basic and does not reflect
      the new prediction code but this would require per MB costings
      and the benefit is probably marginal, as this is really just used for
      rate estimation in the loop.

      Merged NEWNEAR experiment · 9c9300f5
      Paul Wilkins authored
      This commit merges the NEWNEAR experiment such that it
      is effectively always on.
      
      The fact that there were changes in the threading code again
      highlights the need to strip out such features during the
      bitstream development phase as trying to maintain this code
      (especially as it is not being tested) slows the development cycle.

      Coding the hybrid dual prediction signal. · 82b865da
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Initial modifications to make limited use of common prediction
      functions.
      
      The only functional change thus far is that updates to the probabilities are
      no longer "damped". This was a testing convenience but in fact seems to
      help by a little over 0.1% over the derf set.

      Modified prediction behavior for reference frame. · 58ec6fe8
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Trial of a modified prediction function that ranks each possible
      reference frame based on a combination of local usage and
      frame level probability. The code is a bit cleaner and simpler.
      
      In direct comparison with old unpredicted method with segment level
      coding turned off for mode,ref & EOB the prediction gives a gain on derf
      of around 0.4%. There is some further gain from bug fixes over earlier code.
      
      With segment coding on the prediction method is slightly -ve on some very
      easy clips (at low rates) due to slightly higher overheads, but better on harder
      clips. Overall neutral on derf in direct comparison on latest code base, but
      compared to earlier code without bug fixes about +0.7% overall psnr
      +0.3% SSIM.

      Added encoding in Superblock Order · 5d0b5a17
      Adrian Grange authored
      As a precursor to encoding 32x32 blocks this cl adds the
      ability to encode the frame superblock (=32x32 block) at
      a time. Within a SB the 4 indiviual MBs are encoded in
      raster-order (NW,NE,SW,SE).
      
      This functionality is added as an experiment which can be
      enabled by ispecifying --enable-superblocks in the
      command line specified to configure (CONFIG_SUPERBLOCKS
      macro in the code).
      
      To make this work I had to disable the two intra
      prediction modes that use data from the top-right of the
      MB.
      
      On the tests that I have run the results produce
      almost exactly the same PSNRs & SSIMs with a very
      slightly higher average data rate (and slightly higher
      data rate than just disabling the two intra modes in
      the original code).
      
      NOTE: This will also break the multi-threaded code.
      
      This replaces the abandoned change:

      vpn common -> implicit segmentation · 91325b8f
      Jim Bankoski authored
      This introduces base functions for introducing implicit segmentation.
      The code that actually stores the results to the segment map isn't
      here yet.   This just prints out the segmentation map results
      if you call it.
      
      Uses connected component labeling technique on mbmi info so that only
      if 2 mbs are horizontally or vertically touching do they get the same
      segment.
      
      vp8next - plumbing for rotation
      
      code to produce taps for rotation ( tapify. py ),  code
      for predicting using rotation ( predict_rotated.c ) ,  code
      for finding the best rotation find_rotation.c.
      
      didn't checkin code that uses this in the codec.   still work
      in progress.

      changed loop filter for MBs using 8x8 transform · aebb16bf
      Yaowu Xu authored
      This commit added a set of loop filter functions for macroblocks
      using 8x8 transform. First we turned off the regular loop filtering
      on 4x4 block boundaries that do not exist in macroblocks using 8x8
      transform. Second, we change to use the same loop filter(mask and
      7 tap filter) that used for macroblock edge filtering.

      Added code to prevent I8X8_PRED mode for MBs using 8x8 transform · 5aab0c3f
      Yaowu Xu authored
      This fixed a conflict introduced by the change of adding 8x8 intra
      prediction modes. The 8x8 intra prediction mode code assumed the
      use of 4x4 transform, and causes encoder crashes when the codec is
      configured with --enable-t8x8.
