bssd:
when using --direct auto in multipass mode, in case of tie between direct auto and direct temporal, use SSD as an extra criterion to choose direct mode

The --fpel patch with ESA is not much slower than regular ESA and somewhat better, so its "worthwhile" as an insane option.
Useful as a higher-end option in place of using absurd numbers of refs. Can give a roughly 1-3% quality boost with the most recent version.
Pretty much useless with ESA now threaded.
But IMH would be better then ESA if you want a sort of middle ground with not too huge of a speed loss, correct?

no... IMH is practically useless. the difference in speed is so small it isnt worthwhile.

I agree with these guys here. Sharktooth and Shikari made me realize that it's virtually useless when you now have esa multithreaded.

Will esa's multithreading be useful on single-cores, or is it only good for multi-cores?

So, imh is still useful on single-cores then?

Sorta, but who has a single-core processor nowadays?

Aw, my pride...

Lots of people still use single core, I'd hazard a guess, majority is still on single core. (majority in the world, not just on these boards)

single core ppl should not bother using ESA or IMH...
They should stick to saner settings unless they dont care about encoding speed at all...

Not really. The reason IMH was useful before was because it offered higher quality than UMH, but was multi-threaded. At the time, ESA was only single threaded, so the speed difference on a mutli-core systems was very large.

In other words, IMH was never really useful on single core machines. Just use ESA if you want more than UMH.

i'm sorry...
is there somebody who will update first-post, so all changes to the patches would be more "in one place" and i'd be happy to use them with 681 (as seen on x264.nl)

reason for this: i've noticed some chat about changing option names in Dark Shikari's patches..

Another idea to add to the OP is limitations of the patch and/or an explanation of why it hasn't been added to SVN. Really help point out the maturity and support of each patch. This might need the help of akupenguin.

Subme7 is ready to add to SVN, hopefully it'll be done soon.

ME-Prepass is next.

From the x264 changelog:
Quote:
use hex instead of dia for rdo mv refinement. ~0.5% lower bitrate at subme=7.
patch by Dark Shikari.
That the patch you're on about?
