Disabling RDO

I have tried disabling RDO by using the cmd line flag "SBACRD" and set it to false for running the encoder. But then it crashes while running. Please provide a fix for this problem.

The --SBACRD option does not disable RDO, it disables the use of CABAC for rate cost calculation as part of the RDO based mode decision process. For older versions of HM, when --SBACRD=0, rate costs would be calculated using a VLC method. However, these methods were removed in HM-5.0.

Very little testing has ever been performed using this option (prior to HM-5.0), it may well have been broken since much earlier versions of HM.

I would recommend removal of the --SBACRD option and all associated code for the disabled case, since it just causes confusion when reading/modifying the code, and to users expecting it to do something.
