      Allow LF_UPDATE type of frames to use BWDREF · 4e8acca9
      Wei-ting Lin authored
      Originally, only bi-pred type of frames can use BWDREF. When
      extra alt-refs are inserted in a gf group, the closest alt-ref
      serves as ALTREF for the frames within the corresponding
      subgroup. Therefore, the original alt-ref can be used as BWDREF
      for the LF_UPDATE type of frames.
      
      This patch further swaps the virtual indices of BWDREF and ALTREF
      for those frames whose BWDREF is farther than ALTREF. As a result,
      the BWDREF is always the closet backward reference frame, and the
      ALTREF is the farther one.
      
      It improves the average RD performance by
      
      0.132% in lowres, and
      0.030% in midres.
      
      The overall gains for the ext-refs compared to the baseline are
      
      5.486% in lowres, and
      4.666% in midres.

      Insert multiple arfs in a gf group to emulate multi-layer backward
      reference frames structure. At maximum, two extra ARF's are inserted
      in a gf group.
      
      It improves the RD performance by 0.317% in Avg in lowres dataset.

      Change the B-frame coding structure. · b20d0777
      Wei-ting Lin authored
      Originally we can have a BRF right before an overlay frame (in
      display order), which might be unnecessary since we already has a
      quality backward reference frame (ARF).
      This patch avoids such a coding structure and improves the RD
      performance by 0.086% in Avg in the lowres dataset, and 0.153 in
      Avg in the midres dataset.
      
      In the lowres dataset, significant gains are obtained for the
      following sequences:
      
      mobisode2_240p: 0.563%
      keiba_240p: 0.440%
      bus_cif: 0.336%
      soccer_cif: 0.333%
      
      And the performance drops only in the following four video sequences:
      
      motherdaughter_cif: 0.028%
      bqsquare_240p: 0.017%
      basketballpass_240p: 0.015%
      bowing_cif: 0.006%

      Allow OVERLAY frames to use the show_exsiting_frame flag · ccc9e7cf
      Wei-ting Lin authored
      ARF with zero strength temporal filter can be reused by setting the
      show_existing_frame = 1, and in this case, there is no need to
      refresh the reference frame buffer. However, we used the flag
      "refresh_golden_frame" as the identifier for the starting point of a gf
      group.
      
      A new flags "is_arf_filter_off" is used to record if the filter with
      strengrh zero is used.

      Merge bi-predictive frames to EXT_REFS · 5805a14c
      Zoe Liu authored
      This patch removed the experiment of BIDIR_PRED and merged the feature
      into the experiment of EXT_REFS:
      
      (1) Each frame now has up to 6 reference frames, namely
          LAST_FRAME, LAST2_FRAME, LAST3_FRAME, GOLDEN_FRAME, (forward) and
          BWDREF_FRAME, ALTREF_FRAME (backward);
          LAST4_FRAME has been removed;
      (2) First pass still keeps the 8 updates:
          KF_UPDATE, LF_UPDATE, GF_UPDATE, ARF_UPDATE, OVERLAY_UPDATE, and
          BRF_UPDATE, LAST_BIPRED_UPDATE, BI_PRED_UPDATE;
      (3) show_existing_frame==1 is supported in the experiment of EXT_REFS;
      (4) New encoding modes are added for both single-ref and compound cases,
          through the use of the 2 extra forward references (LAST2 & LAST3)
          and the 1 extra backward reference (BWDREF).
      
      RD performance wise, using Overall PSNR: Avg/BDRate

      Segment level quantizer settings for supertx coded blocks are now
      selected based on the minimum of all segment IDs within a supertx
      coded block.
      
      This also fixes the 3 adaptive quantization modes with supertx.

      Make the bi-predictive frame group interval adjustable · e89ca180
      Zoe Liu authored
      This is for the bidir-pred experiment. Previously the length of the
      bi-predictive frame group interval is fixed at 2, i.e. one
      bi-predictive frame may be inserted every other frame. This patch
      makes the length adjustable, i.e. any positive number may be
      specified, but the use of the backward ref will be turned off if the
      bi-predictive frame group interval is larger than the golden frame
      group.
      
      Further, an additional rate factor level has been added:
      INTER_LOW
      , which applies to LAST_BIPRED_UPDATE frames that are not used as
      references.

      Added an experiment "bidir_pred" for backward prediction · cf5083d4
      Zoe Liu authored
      Major parts have been implemented as follows:
      (1) Added BRF_UPDATE, LASTNRF_UPDATE, and NRF_UPDATE in firstpass.c;
      (2) Added the handling for the scenario of
      "cpi->common.show_existing_frame == 1" at the encoder;
      (3) Added a new reference frame of BWDREF_FRAME;
      (4) Have bwd-ref work with upsampled references.
      
      Note that when the experiment of "ext_refs" turned on, this experiment
      will be turned off automatically currently.
      
      RD performance in Overall PSNR has been improved, compared against the
      VP10 baseline:
      
      lowres: Avg -3.312; BDRate -3.154
      derflr: Avg -1.927; BDRate -1.176
      midres: Avg -2.149; BDRate -2.001

      Fixed 8K two pass encoder crash. · 65732c36
      paulwilkins authored
      Bug found by Yunqing relating to the correction for size at 8K and
      above in get_twopass_worst_quality().
      
      The basis for the correction was changed to the linear size relative to
      1080P as a baseline and the adjustment has been clamped to prevent
      problems at extreme images sizes.
      
      For 1080P the results on our test sets were neutral but the low res and
      mid res sets saw a small gain (0.1%-0.2% average).
      
      I would also expect some gains on 4k and larger content where the
      previous correction was overly aggressive.

      Make LAST_FRAME always point to the newly coded frame in ext-refs · a912c6ec
      Zoe Liu authored
      This patch changes the encoder only for the ext-refs experiment. For
      each newly coded frame to refresh the LAST_FRAME, the decoder is
      notified that the LAST4_FRAME is to be refreshed, and read out the
      updated reference frame buffer vitural indexes for the next coded
      frame in a way that:
      LAST4_FRAME => LAST_FRAME,
      LAST_FRAME  => LAST2_FRAME,
      LAST2_FRAME => LAST3_FRAME, and
      LAST3_FRAME => LAST4_FRAME.
      
      Compared against the original ext-refs experiment in TOT, a small gain
      is achieved in overall PSNR:
      lowres Avg: -0.154
      lowres BDRate: -0.044

      For the experiment of EXT_REFS, removed the previous special handling
      on the new last 3 references, i.e. LAST2_FRAME, LAST3_FRAME, and
      LAST4_FRAME, at the decoder, so that these new last references are
      treated the same way as the other 3 references (LAST_FRAME,
      GOLDEN_FRAME, and ALTREF_FRAME). Encoder changes have been made
      accordingly to realize this flexibility.

      Add some plumbing for left and right active edge detection.
      
      Patch set 5. Limit rd pass through for sub 8x8 to internal active edges.
      This takes away any speed penalty for most clips but keeps the enhanced
      edge coding for the more critical case of internal image edges
