Fast inter frame encoding based on modes pre-decision in H.264
The new video coding standard, H.264 allows motion estimation performing on tree-structured block partitioning and multiple reference frames. This feature improves the prediction accuracy significantly, but the cost of which is the complexity and computation load of video coding increase drastically. The reference software of H.264 adopts a full search scheme and its complexity increases linearly with specified the number of reference frames and the number of modes respectively. In this paper, we propose a fast mode decision algorithm in H.264 which eliminates searching unnecessary modes. The proposed algorithm takes full use of available information obtained from the previous searching process, e.g., macroblock’s best mode in searching the previous reference frames. In the algorithm implementation, multiple half-stop conditions have been set in motion estimation so as to decrease encoder’s complexity. Simulation results show that this proposed algorithm can effectively reduce com...
