0.9.9.1 (Released 20.01.2005 by Manao)
No need anymore of stlport_vcxxxx.dll
Filter added : Corrector
Filter added : MVIncrease
New available blocksize : 16
New parameter in MVAnalyse : chroma
Changes in the core
MVCompensate changed : a new parameter, idx, which works as idx in MVAnalyse, and which allows speed up when compensating the same frames several times.
ME takes into account the chroma now, as requested by tsp.
Added Corrector function, as requested by scharfi.
New function MVDepan (added by Fizick) for Depan plugin.
Yet another little changes in the filters' syntax. The core changed a lot, in order to gain speed were it was possible. However, by default, the speed gain won't be visible, you'll need to configure correctly the analysis filter through its "idx" parameter in order to gain speed ( in the mode "pel" = 2 ).
Bugfixes in MVDenoise, and chroma denoising in MVDenoise.
Now, the filters down the filter's chain tell to the analysis filter if they need the compensation, so you don't have to worry about that at the analysis stage.
Yet again, a lot of rewriting. Interpolating filters are disabled ( for the moment ), all the other filters work and should be considered as stable. Syntax has changed a lot, and will change again before reaching 1.0 ( if it's reached one day ). Changes mainly affect MVAnalyse. New filter : MVChangeCompensate.
Fixed bug in MVMask parameters.
Lot of bugfixes for the existing filters. MVMask, MVShow, MVCompensate, MVDenoise and MVSCDetection, and MVAnalyse should work . Other may crash unexpectedly.
Now, for the three new filters. Two have nothing to do with motion compensation, but I didn't want to put them in separate binaries, since they'll mainly be used with filters from this package. The third one uses vectors, and integrates somehow the two others.
QDeQuant(clip c, int quant, int level) : takes a clip and quantizes it, using an approximation of the H264 DCT. It filters the three planes ( 4x4 blocks for each of them, so the chroma isn't processed as in H264 ). It's not exactly the H264 DCT because at q1, it's lossless, and a q51 it's not that bad, but you can raise quant over 51. Level is the reference level of the picture. By default it's zero, but it can be set, for example, to 128. The picture is then treates as if pixels were ranging from -128 to 127, hence avoiding errors around 128.
Deblock(clip c, int quant, int aOffset, int bOffset ) : takes a clip, and deblock it using H264 deblocking, as if the picture was made only of inter blocks. This time, quant ranges from 0 to 51 as in H264, and has the same impact. aOffset and bOffset allow to raise / lower the quant when deciding for some internal thresholds. They are set by default to 0. Be warned that the filter should do nothing at quant lesser 16, if aOffset and bOffset are both zero. It's a wanted behavior ( thus it respect the partially the norm ).
EncDenoise(clip c, clip vectors, bool scbehavior, int quant, int aOffset, int bOffset, int thSCD1, int thSCD2) : it merges Deblock, QDeQuant and MVCompensate, taking from them the name and behavior of their parameters. It basically does a h264 encode as if all blocks were 8x8 inter blocks. Reference frame is the previous frame output by the filter ( if it is the correct one, else it's the previous frame of the source ), mvs are those given by mvanalyse on the source. The reference frame is compensated by the vectors, then the residual difference is quantized / dequantized and added to the result of the motion compensation. Finally, the frame is deblocked, and serves as reference for the next one.
Mainly a bugfixe ( several filters were affected by a silly bug , and MVCompensate now do padded motion compensation, and compensate also the chroma ( though it rounds the vector to odd coordinates to do so )
A new feature, as asked by Fizick, for mvcompensate : "scbehavior", a boolean set to true by default, will allow you to keep the previous frame over a scenechange if you set it to false.
MVMask has two new parameters : showsad (bool) which allows to build the mask of the SAD values instead of the mask of the vectors' length. Ysc allows you to set the value taken by the mask on scene changes
MVCompensate : behavior modification on scene changes. Now, the current frame is left untouched if a scene change was detected.
New filter : MVSCDetection, with one parameter, Ysc, which works as previously.
MVInterpolate, MVConvertFPS and MVBlur are enabled, but may be buggy ( though I wasn't able to make MVConvertFPS crash )
Huge rewritting of the core engine. Vectors are now searched with a precision up to the pixel ( because no other filters can use yet more precise vectors, except MVShow ). The search engine is now fast ( which doesn't mean necessarily that the filters which use it are fast )
A new parameter for MVAnalyse : lambda. See the documentation of the filter to see how it works
MVDenoise works better.
Vectors can be saved to a file. In order to do so, add the parameter filename="C:\foo.bar" to the filter MVAnalyse. If the file doesn't exist, vectors will be saved into it. If it exists, vectors will be read from it. But, be warned :
The file for a whole movie will be around 500 MB
Saving / reading from a file need for the moment a linear access to the frames, so it has to be used only when encoding the movie, not when doing random access in it.
The speed gain is not as great as one may hope, because SADs can't be saved ( it would take too much space ) and so have to be recomputed.
The filter MVDenoise now works on 5 frames, and its parameters are now "thT" and "sadT" ( have a look in the documentation to see how they work ). It works nice ( very good for heavy denoising )
The scene change detection thresholds have slightly changed. Now, a block has changed if its SAD it over thSCD1. The default for thSCD1 is 300, and for thSCD2 it is 130. It orks well ( better than the previous SCD engine ).
Last cleanings in the search of the motion vectors. It should be slightly faster
More search parameters can be set by the user, especially the search algorithm. See the documentation
Server / client implemented. You now first have to use MVAnalyse, and then the filter you want. Look at the documentation and at the examples I'll give alter.
MVCompensate is separated from MVShow ( it's more logic that way ). For the moment, it doesn't move the chroma ( same behavior as MVShow in the latest releases )
Some cleaning in MVBlur / MVInterpolate / MVConvertFPS, but still some work to do. Now, MVBlur blurs around the frame, not between the frame and the previous one.
Half of the work is done for writing vectors to a file. But the resulting file will be large ( around 500 MB - 1 GB I guess ).
MVDenoise is slightly faster ( at least it should )
Copies are optimized inside the filter, thanks to avisynth's copy functions.
MVShow can display the mean SAD of the compensation ( using showsad = true )
MVInterpolate makes its come back.
MVConvertFPS should work on the last few frames of the clip
MVInterpolate doesn't exist anymore.
MVBlur and MVConvertFPS have been improved. They also have got new parameters, have a look at the documentation.
MVShow gets back its compensate mode ( MVShow(cm = true) )
