Title: SPLIT BASED MOTION VECTOR OPERATION REDUCTION
Abstract:
A reduced merge candidate signaling method is provided. When building a merge candidate list for a prediction unit (PU) of a block of pixels, a video codec skips or partially skips the construction of some sub-PU merge candidates. The video codec then performs simplified pruning operations on the merge candidate list based on the skipped or partially constructed sub-PU merge candidates. The pruned candidate list is then used to select a merge candidate to encode or decode the block of pixels.
