Missing definition of Chroma QP

Reported by: qhuang Owned by: bbross
Priority: minor Milestone: WD6
Component: Text Version: D6 (H1003) dI/dJ/dK
Keywords: Cc: bbross, wjhan, jct-vc@…


The relationship between Luma QP and Chroma QP is borrowed from AVC in HM software. However, there is no definition in our committee draft. As a result, many usages are incorrect. Some examples are given here:

  1. The Chroma QP derivation in equations (8-255) and (8-256) are incorrect.
  2. Luma QP is incorrectly used for chroma deblocking.

Thanks for reporting this. Would it be possible to specify the reported issues?

  1. "The Chroma QP derivation in equations (8-255) and (8-256) are incorrect."

Which definition is missing exactly?
Looking at the draft, this should be the AVC table: "Specification of QPC as a function of qPI" and change equations 8-255 and 8-256 as follows.
qPICb = Clip3( −QpBdOffsetC, 51, QPY + cb_qp_offset) (8 255)
qPICr = Clip3( −QpBdOffsetC, 51, QPY + cr_qp_offset) (8 256)
QP’Cb = QPCb + QpBdOffsetC (8 257)
QP’Cr = QPCr + QpBdOffsetC (8 258)

  1. "Luma QP is incorrectly used for chroma deblocking."

Is this related to the following items from the H1003 open issues list?

  • The variable qPL used in deblocking filter process has to be defined by, e.g. setting it to QPY.
  • The Chroma QP should be considered in chroma edge filtering instad of luma QP.
  • The tc and beta values of the deblocking filter should be explicitly scaled in the text since their values are provided in the table for the 8-bit case.
  1. "As a result, many usages are incorrect."

What else is broken except chroma deblocking?
