Fetching the reference frame from the encoder

Greetings,
While using the encoding engine of the Intel Media Sdk, I would like to have access to the reconstructed frame (the encoder-generated decoded frame that will be used as a reference frame for future frames). This reconstructed frame is often quite useful, for example to compute PSNR metrics or to show the user a preview of the encoded video.
I have not found this possibility in the IntelMediaSdk 2.0, other than instanciating a decoding engine and forwarding all generated bitstream into this decoding engine. The problem with this approach is of course the huge performance cost.
Have I missed something ?
Regards

Hello,

Unfortunately Media SDK API doesn't provide access to reconstructed frames. We can record this as a feature request for future Media SDK version, if you'd like.

Best regards,
Nina
