Motion Estimation

Started by Anand K October 11, 2003

Hello friends:

I am trying to implement a video compression algorithm on C6211
(which has low internal memory for this kind of application). Looking
for expert views on doing motion compensation - mainly with regard to
the memory transfers involved in moving blocks that are to be
compared, in and out of memory.

Is it worth spending time and effort in managing EDMA transfers for
each reference frame block for the current block or is it better to
leave all of these block transfers to the L2 controller (i.e.
directly access SDRAM addresses of the reference frame blocks).? Is
there a preferred way of transferring blocks to and from internal

Thanks in advance for sharing your opinion,
