Title
(EN) Video decoding method and apparatus and video encoding method and apparatus
Abstract
(EN)

Provided is a video decoding method including determining a displacement vector per unit time of pixels of a current block in a horizontal direction or a vertical direction, the pixels including a pixel adjacent to an inside of a boundary of the current block, by using values about reference pixels included in a first reference block and a second reference block, without using a stored value about a pixel located outside boundaries of the first reference block and the second reference block; and obtaining a prediction block of the current block by performing block-unit motion compensation and pixel group unit motion compensation on the current block by using a gradient value in the horizontal direction or the vertical direction of a first corresponding reference pixel in the first reference block which corresponds to a current pixel included in a current pixel group in the current block, a gradient value in the horizontal direction or the vertical direction of a second corresponding reference pixel in the second reference block which corresponds to the current pixel, a pixel value of the first corresponding reference pixel, a pixel value of the second corresponding reference pixel, and a displacement vector per unit time of the current pixel in the horizontal direction or the vertical direction. In this regard, the current pixel group may include at least one pixel.
