#914 closed defect (fixed)

The behavior of transform_skip_flag as 0 is not specified.

Description

In the latest HEVC spec, there is no specified behavior when transform_skip_flag is 0. We suggest the following semantics change.

Before:

transform_skip_enabled_flag equal to 1 specifies that transform_skip_flag may be present in the residual coding syntax. transform_skip_enabled_flag equal to 0 specifies that transform_skip_flag is not present in the residual coding syntax.

transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] specifies whether a transform is applied to the associated transform block or not: The array indices x0, y0 specify the location ( x0, y0 ) of the top-left luma sample of the considered transform block relative to the top-left luma sample of the picture. The array index cIdx specifies an indicator for the colour component; it is equal to 0 for luma, equal to 1 for Cb, and equal to 2 for Cr. transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] equal to 1 specifies that no transform will be applied to the current transform block. When transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] is not present, it is inferred to be equal to 0.

After:
transform_skip_enabled_flag equal to 1 specifies that transform_skip_flag may be present in the residual coding syntax. transform_skip_enabled_flag equal to 0 specifies that transform_skip_flag is not present in the residual coding syntax and transform will be applied to the current transform block.

transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] specifies whether a transform is applied to the associated transform block or not: The array indices x0, y0 specify the location ( x0, y0 ) of the top-left luma sample of the considered transform block relative to the top-left luma sample of the picture. The array index cIdx specifies an indicator for the colour component; it is equal to 0 for luma, equal to 1 for Cb, and equal to 2 for Cr. transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] equal to 1 specifies that no transform will be applied to the current transform block. transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] equal to 0 specifies that transform will be applied to the current transform block. When transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] is not present, it is inferred to be equal to 0.

"transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] equal to 0 specifies that transform will be applied to the current transform block."
Thats not true because when one or more of the following conditions are true

  • cu_transquant_bypass_flag equal to 1
  • cu_skip_flag equal to 1
  • rqt_root_cbf equal to 0

transform_skip_flag is not present and therefore inferred to be equal to 0 but transform will not be applied because

  • cu_transquant_bypass_flag is equal to 1 or
  • cu_skip_flag equal to 1 or
  • rqt_root_cbf equal to 0

I suggest the following to define the behavior when transform_skip_flag is equal to 0:
"transform_skip_flag[ x0 ][ y0 ][ cIdx ] equal to 0 specifies that the decision whether transform is applied to the current transform block or not depends on other syntax elements. "
