Missing condition in H.7.3.4 Slice header syntax

Reported by: parkmw Owned by: tech
Priority: minor Component: 3D-HEVC text

Cc: tech, jct-3v@…


In H.7.3.4 Slice header syntax,

else if( layer_id ) {



should be replaced by

else if( layer_id ) {

if( slice_ic_enable_flag ) {




in order to align with the HTM software implementation.

I agree.

This misalignment was introduced by adoption of D0060 "3D-CE5.h related: Removal of parsing dependency for illumination compensation". Because slice_ic_disable_merge_zero_idx_flag is useless if slice_ic_enable_flag is false and the current HEVC design doesn't allow these obvious redundancy, text should be aligned with the code.

Additionally, the following text change is also needed.

else if( layer_id ) {


else if( layer_id && first_slice_in_pic_flag) {

On the other hand, the software seems also have a problem. The syntax position is different from that in the specification.

Maybe I need to fix that part in the software on the integration of JCT3V-E0046. Of course, the fix should be encapsulated with the individual macro.

Except for the first reported aspect (slice_ic_disable_merge_zero_idx_flag), HTM-DEV-2.0 seems OK (no mismach). The software doesn't check first_slice_in_pic_flag and decode the flag at the right position.
