      disable compilation of debugging code · 8ca779ab
      John Koleszar authored
      This patch avoids compiling some debugging code in onyx_if.c. The most
      significant fix is to avoid generating code for vp8_write_yuv_frame,
      which is never called. Some other code was removed by the dead code
      elimination performed by the compiler, and this patch does it with the
      preprocessor instead. There are advantages both ways.

      Fix GF interval for non-lagged ARFs · edcbb1c1

      When ARFs are enabled in non-lagged compress modes, the GF interval
      was being reset to zero. Non-lagged ARF updates were enabled in commit
      63ccfbd5, but this incorrect GF interval caused a quality regression.

      vp8_get_compressed_data() was defeating logic in
      encode_frame_to_datarate() that determined the reference buffers to

      Normalize quantizer's zero bin and rounding factors · 3b95a46c

      This patch changes a few numbers in the two constant arrays
      for quantizer's zerobin and rounding factors, in general to
      make the sum of the two factors for any Q to be 128.  While
      it might be beneficial to calibrate the two arrays for best
      quantizer performance, it is not the purpose of this patch.
      Normalizing the two arrays will enable quick optimization
      of the current faster quantizer, i.e .zerobin check can be
      removed.

      Add trellis quantization. · 8fa38096
      Timothy B. Terriberry authored
      Replace the exponential search for optimal rounding during
       quantization with a linear Viterbi trellis and enable it
       by default when using --best.
      Right now this operates on top of the output of the adaptive
       zero-bin quantizer in vp8_regular_quantize_b() and gives a small
       gain.
      It can be tested as a replacement for that quantizer by
       enabling the call to vp8_strict_quantize_b(), which uses
       normal rounding and no zero bin offset.
      Ultimately, the quantizer will have to become a function of lambda
       in order to take advantage of activity masking, since there is
       limited ability to change the quantization factor itself.
      However, currently vp8_strict_quantize_b() plus the trellis
       quantizer (which is lambda-dependent) loses to
       vp8_regular_quantize_b() alone (which is not) on my test clip.
      
      Patch Set 3:
      
      Fix an issue related to the cost evaluation of successor
      states when a coefficient is reduced to zero. With this
      issue fixed, now the trellis search almost exactly matches
      the exponential search.
      
      Patch Set 2:
      
      Overall, the goal of this patch set is to make "trellis"
      search to produce encodings that match the exponential
      search version. There are three main differences between
      Patch Set 2 and 1:
      a. Patch set 1 did not properly account for the scale of
      2nd order error, so patch set 2 disable it all together
      for 2nd blocks.
      b. Patch set 1 was not consistent on when to enable the
      the quantization optimization. Patch set 2 restore the
      condition to be consistent.
      c. Patch set 1 checks quantized level L-1, and L for any
      input coefficient was quantized to L. Patch set 2 limits
      the candidate coefficient to those that were rounded up
      to L. It is worth noting here that a strategy to check
      L and L+1 for coefficients that were truncated down to L
      might work.
      
      (a and b get trellis quant to basically match the exponential
      search on all mid/low rate encodings on cif set, without
      a, b, trellis quant can hurt the psnr by 0.2 to .3db at
      200kbps for some cif clips)
      (c gets trellis quant  to match the exponential search
      to match at Q0 encoding, without c, trellis quant can be
      1.5 to 2db lower for encodings with fixed Q at 0 on most
      derf cif clips)

      At the end of the decode, frame buffers were being copied.
      The frames are not updated after the copy, they are just

      Changes needed to be made to the encoder to handle this.  The

      insures that sufficient bits are allocated if needed and allocating a
      full frame's worth of bits creates an excessive overhead for the ARF.

      Further adjustment of RD behaviour with Q and Zbin. · 1ca39bf2
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Following conversations with Tim T (Derf) I ran a large number of
      tests comparing the existing polynomial expression with a simpler

      the extremes of Q it was possible to get close for most clips and
      even a little better on some.
      
      This code also changes the way the RD multiplier is calculated
      when the ZBIN is extended to use a variant of the same ^2
      expression.
      
      I hope that this simpler expression will be easier to tune further
      as we expand our test set and consider adjustments based on content.
