      Nonrd_pickmode: avoid computing UV cost when early_term is set. · 6fbc354c
      Marco authored
      For nonrd_pickmode: if early_term is set there should be
      no need to include UV in rdcost (when color_sensitivity is set).
      Neutral change on RTC and RTC_derf metrics, for speed >= 5.
      No change for ytlive metrics.
      Very small speed gain (~0.5%) on some clips with strong color content.

      Compound prediction mode for nonrd pickmode. · eb7d431c
      Marco authored
      Allow for compound prediction mode in nonrd_pickmode for ZEROMV.
      For real-time encoding, 1 pass with non-zero lag-in-frames.
      Added speed feature to control the feature.
      Enabled for speed >=6 for now, under VBR mode.
      avgPSNR/SSIM metrics positive on ytlive set, for speed 6:
      some clips up by ~3-5%, some clips neutral gain, average gain
      across clips is ~1%.
      Small/negligible decrease in speed.

      Fix bug in intra mode rd penalty. · 0657f473
      paulwilkins authored
      The intra mode rd penalty was implemented as a rate penalty.
      Code was added to scale the penalty according to block size but
      this was not done correctly for the SB level or sub 8x8.
      The code did a weird double scaling in regard to bit depth that
      has been removed. Given that it is a rate penalty the bit depth
      should not matter.
      This bug fix improves average metrics  on our standard test
      sets by about 0.1%

      vp9: Fix denoising condition when pickmode partition is used. · 999bd6ea
      Marco authored
      When the superblock partition is based on the nonrd-pickmode,
      we need to avoid the denoising. Current condition was based on
      the speed level. This change is to make the condition at the
      superblock level, as the switch in partitioning may be done at
      sb level based on source_sad (e.g., in speed 6).

      Make the row based multi-threaded encoder deterministic · 10a497bd
      Yunqing Wang authored
      This patch followed allow_exhaustive_searches feature modification and
      continued to modify the encoder to achieve the determinism in the row
      based multi-threaded encoding. While row-mt = 1 and using multiple
      threads, the adaptive feature in encoder was disabled, which gave
      BDRate gain(at speed 1, -0.6% ~ -0.7%; at speed 2, -0.46% ~ -0.59%),
      but some encoder speed losses(7% ~ 10% at speed 1 and 3% ~ 6% at
      speed 2). These speed losses were acceptable considering the speed
      gains obtained from row-mt.
