#4614 open enhancement

10bit->8bit user selectable dither

Reported by: surfdog2020 Owned by:
Priority: wish Component: swscale
Version: git-master Keywords: dithering
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:
providing arguments into 'sws_dither' never affects the output. It appears that no matter which dithering algorithm you specify in sws_dither (of the 4 that are available), ffmpeg ignores it and uses the same dithering algorithm for colorspace conversion no matter what. MD5s of the output .yuv files confirms this.

How to reproduce:

commands only :
./ffmpeg -v debug -y -i /mnt/storage/ProRes_10bit_422.mov -t 30 -pix_fmt yuv420p -an -threads 36 -vf scale=1920:-1:sws_dither=a_dither mnt/storage/raw_8bit_420_adither.yuv

Try to pass the sws flag to make it print info about the conversion parameters used, I don't remember the syntax off-hand .. but if it says that its using a "specialized" converter, then it won't execute the generic dithering pass. You can usually force the generic path by passing the accurate rounding and/or full internal chroma flags.

I'm guessing that you wanted me to add '-sws_flags print_info' to my command line. If that is the case, I see no mention of a "specialized" converter being used. I only see the following get added to my command's output:

SwScaler?: reducing / aligning filtersize 1 -> 4

Can you also clarify how one can pass in the "accurate rounding" of the internal chroma flags?

Try with "-sws_flags +accurate_rnd+full_chroma_inp+full_chroma_int", that should hopefully make it perform a high quality conversion with dithering. The last option is probably not needed for your use-case, IIRC its only needed when you upsample chroma, not downsample.

I'm looking to be able to specify the dithering algorithm used on the 10-bit to 8-bit conversion. I tried:
./ffmpeg -v debug -sws_flags +accurate_rnd+full_chroma_inp+full_chroma_int -y -i /mnt/storage/ProRes_10bit_422.mov -sws_dither a_dither -t 30 -pix_fmt yuv420p -an -threads 36 -vf scale=1920:-1:sws_dither=a_dither /mnt/storage/raw_8bit_420_adither.yuv

./ffmpeg -v debug -sws_flags +accurate_rnd+full_chroma_inp+full_chroma_int -y -i /mnt/storage/ProRes_10bit_422.mov -sws_dither bayer -t 30 -pix_fmt yuv420p -an -threads 36 -vf scale=1920:-1:sws_dither=bayer /mnt/storage/raw_8bit_420_bayer.yuv

Both output files are still equal to each other, have the same md5 value.

comment:8 follow-up: Changed 2 years ago by michael

  • Component changed from undetermined to swscale
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Summary changed from sws_dither arguments aren't affecting output in colorspace conversion to 10bit->8bit user selectable dither
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement
  • Version changed from 2.6.3 to git-master

I dont think this case is supported currently but it would be nice to add support for

Replying to michael:

The documentation says that this should be already supported, see: https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-all.html#Scaler-Options, this was my reasoning in marking it as a defect instead of enhancement.

Regardless of the label, I agree that this is functionality that would be beneficial to have, as some folks prefer one way of dithering over another.
