SCM-3.0 search range of Nx2N IBC

Reported by: jlliao Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: HM SCC Version: SCC-3.0 (HM16.2)
Keywords: Cc: ksuehring, davidf, karlsharman, jct-vc@…


Nx2N IBC performs full-frame search when full-frame search of IBC is disabled.

Existing code looks like this:

Void TEncSearch::xIntraPatternSearch(…)

Int lowY = (pcCU->getPartitionSize(uiPartAddr) == SCM_S0067_IBC_FULL_1D_SEARCH_FOR_PU) ? -cuPelY : max(iSrchRngVerTop, 0 - cuPelY);

const Int boundX = (pcCU->getPartitionSize(uiPartAddr) == SCM_S0067_IBC_FULL_1D_SEARCH_FOR_PU) ? -cuPelX : max(iSrchRngHorLeft, - cuPelX);


should be changed look like this:

Void TEncSearch::xIntraPatternSearch(…)

Int lowY = (pcCU->getPartitionSize(uiPartAddr) == SCM_S0067_IBC_FULL_1D_SEARCH_FOR_PU && m_pcEncCfg->getUseIntraBCFullFrameSearch()) ? -cuPelY : max(iSrchRngVerTop, 0 - cuPelY);

const Int boundX = (pcCU->getPartitionSize(uiPartAddr) == SCM_S0067_IBC_FULL_1D_SEARCH_FOR_PU && m_pcEncCfg->getUseIntraBCFullFrameSearch()) ? -cuPelX : max(iSrchRngHorLeft, - cuPelX);

Actually, it's not a bug, but a feature.

What happens is that this partition is rather helpful, and feeds the cache used in having fast estimation. Please see section 2.3 of S0065, where we mention the positive tradeoff.

I would suggest to selectively deactivate it depending on the intent of the test.

I am sorry that I do not describe my problem clearly.
When the following two parameters in the cfg file are set equal to 3 (i.e. 4 CTUs), the search range of IBC is constrained.

IntraBlockCopySearchWidthInCTUs : 3 # Search range for IBC (-1: full frame search)
IntraBlockCopyNonHashSearchWidthInCTUs : 3 # Search range for IBC non-hash search method (i.e., fast/full search)

In that constrained case, 2Nx2N, 2NxN and NxN performs searching within 4 CTUs while Nx2N still performs full frame search.
If Nx2N to search within full frame is really intended when the two parameters are set equal to, say, 4 CTUs, it should be mentioned in the cfg file; otherwise, the current description of the two parameters is a bit confusing.

OK, then you're right, and checking also whether FF search is selected, is probably the right thing to do.

Dear all, this should really be included in SCM4.0, as this affects SCC CTCs. (e.g. non-fullframe, 4x1, IBC search area).
