      Use diamond search to replace full search in full-pixel refining search · cb7b1fb1
      Yunqing Wang authored
      In NEWMV mode, currently, full search is used as the refining search
      after n-step search. By replacing it with an iterative diamond search
      of radius 1 largely reduced the computation complexity, but still
      maintained the same encoding quality since the refining search is
      done for every macroblock instead of only a small precentage of
      macroblocks while using full search.
      
      Tests on the test set showed a 3.4% encoding speed increase with none
      psnr & ssim loss.

      Modify HEX search · 04ec930a
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Changed 8-neighbor searching to 4-neighour searching, and continued
      searching until the center point is the best match.
      
      Test on test set showed 1.3% encoding speed improvement as well as
      0.1% PSNR and SSIM improvement at speed=-5 (rt mode).
      
      Will continue to improve it.

      Use sub-pixel search's SSE in mode selection · b8f0b599
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Passed SSE from sub-pixel search back to pick_inter_mode
      function, which is compared with the encode_breakout to
      see if we could skip evaluating the remaining modes.

      Reduce unnecessary distortion computation · 918fb548
      Yunqing Wang authored
      In vp8_pick_inter_mode(), for NEWMV mode, use the error result got
      from motion search as distortion. This helps performance in real-
      time mode.

      Use full-pixel MV in mvsadcost calculation · 3d681581
      Yunqing Wang authored
      MV sad cost error is only used in full-pixel motion search,
      which only need full-pixel resolution instead of quarter-pixel
      resolution. This change reduced mvsadcost table size, and
      removed unneccessary pamameter passing since this table is
      constant once it is generated.

      Increase static linkage, remove unused functions · 429dc676
      John Koleszar authored
      A large number of functions were defined with external linkage, even
      though they were only used from within one file. This patch changes
      their linkage to static and removes the vp8_ prefix from their names,
      which should make it more obvious to the reader that the function is
      contained within the current translation unit. Functions that were
      not referenced were removed.
      
      These symbols were identified by:
      
        $ nm -A libvpx.a | sort -k3 | uniq -c -f2 | grep ' [A-Z] ' \
          | sort | grep '^ *1 '

      Improve motion search in real-time mode · 41e6eceb
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Applied better MV prediction in real-time mode, which improves
      the encoding quality.
      
      Used quarter-pixel search instead of iterative sub-pixel search
      for speed >=5 to improve encoding performance.
      
      Tests on the test set showed:
      1. For speed=-5, quality improvement: 1.7% on AvgPSNR and 2.1%
      on SSIM, performance improvement: 3.6% (This counts in the
      performance lose caused by MV prediction calculation in "Improve
      MV prediction in vp8_pick_inter_mode() for speed>3").
      2. For speed=-8, quality improvement: 2.1% on AvgPSNR and 2.5%
      on SSIM. but, 6.9% performance decrease because of MV prediction
      calculation. This should be improved later.

      Fix a bug in motion search code(2) · 08706a3e
      Yunqing Wang authored
      This fix added MV range checks for NEWMV mode as suggested by Jim.
      To reduce unnecessary MV range checks, I tried Yaowu's suggestion.
      Update UMV borders in NEWMV mode to also cover MV range check.
      Also, in this way, every MV that is valid gets checked in diamond
      search function.

      Fix a bug in motion search code · 7fb0f868
      Yunqing Wang authored
      The MV's range is 256. Since the new motion search uses a different
      starting MV than the center ref MV, a MV range checking needs to
      be done to avoid corruption.

      Improve MV prediction accuracy to achieve performance gain · c3bbb291
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Add vp8_mv_pred() to better predict starting MV for NEWMV
      mode in vp8_rd_pick_inter_mode(). Set different search
      ranges according to MV prediction accuracy, which improves
      encoder performance without hurting the quality. Also,
      as Yaowu suggested, using diamond search result as full
      search starting point and therefore adjusting(reducing)
      full search range helps the performance.

      Add half-pixel variance RTCD functions · 209d82ad
      John Koleszar authored
      NEON has optimized 16x16 half-pixel variance functions, but they
      were not part of the RTCD framework. Add these functions to RTCD,
      so that other platforms can make use of this optimization in the
      future and special-case ARM code can be removed.
      
      A number of functions were taking two variance functions as
      parameters. These functions were changed to take a single
      parameter, a pointer to a struct containing all the variance
      functions for that block size. This provides additional flexibility
      for calling additional variance functions (the half-pixel special
      case, for example) and by initializing the table for all block sizes,
      we don't have to construct this function pointer table for each
      macroblock.

      The ARM version of vp8_hex_search() is a faster implementation

      Improve bounds checking in vp8_diamond_search_sadx4() · d6da7b8e
      Yunqing Wang authored
      In order to know if all 4/8 neighbor points are within the bounds,
      4 bounds checking are enough instead of checking 4 bounds for
      each points (16/32 checkings). This improvement reduces cost of
      vp8_diamond_search_sadx4() by 30%, and gives encoder a 1.5%
      performance gain (test options: 1 pass, good, speed=4).

      Fritz Koenig authored
      bestsad should be an int initialized to INT_MAX.  The optimized
      SAD function expects a signed value for bestsad to use for comparison
      and early loop termination.  When no match is made, which is
      determined by a comparison of bestsad to INT_MAX, INT_MAX is returned.
