valgrind error in ALF decoding:

Reported by: thomasd Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: HM Version: HM-5.0
Keywords: ALF Cc: fbossen, ksuehring, davidf, jct-vc@…


Applies to version HM-5.0 and HM-5.0rc1.

When decoding a sequence with ALF, valgrind reports the use of uninitialised values in TComAdaptiveLoopFilter::calcVar, line 1378. No MD5 mismatches have been found yet. Encoder command line:

-c encoder_lowdelay.cfg -c RaceHorsesC.cfg -i RaceHorses_832x480_30.yuv -b ./test.bit -o ./test.yuv --FramesToBeEncoded=10 --ALF=1 --SAO=0

This is the new version of calcVar introduced as a result of G609. The issue goes away if macro G609_NEW_BA_SUB is set to 0. It's possibly due to the use of a local array with padding not properly initialised.

Setting the loop parameters to m_img_{height,width} - 3 instead of m_img_{height,width} + 3 removes the problem, but produces a different bit stream. It's unclear to me what the correct bounds should be.
