VPP HW Impl blurs Text Image

Hi,

I am using vpp samples from Intel Media SDK Samples 2016 6.0.0.142 and Intel(R)_Media_SDK_2016.0.1. I need to convert RGB32 (BGRA) frames into NV12 and pass them to h264 encoder.

I am observing that HW implementation of VPP is blurring the text images portion in output frame, but if I use SW implementation then conversion is perfectly fine. In HW impl, part of text (specifically the vertical lines area) are slightly reddish or blueish. Please refer the attachment.

Can you let me know if it is any known bug in VPP or Graphics driver? How to correct it and make it with same quality as in SW impl? I prefer not to use SW impl of VPP considering the speed factor.

Attachments:

ii. VppIn.bgr: input frame in BGRA format

iii. VppOut_HW.nv12: output nv12 frame generated through HW impl

iv. VppOut_SW.nv12: output nv12 frame generated through SW impl

v. Compare.jpg: snap shot of both output frame with highlighting the issue

Hi Ramashankar,

Could you please provide me command line parameters that you used for running sample_vpp?

Hi Anna,

I used following command line parameters:

1. sample_vpp -i VppIn.bgr -sw 1920 -sh 1080 -scc rgb4 -dw 1920 -dh 1080 -dcc nv12 -lib hw -o VppOut_HW.nv12

2. sample_vpp -i VppIn.bgr -sw 1920 -sh 1080 -scc rgb4 -dw 1920 -dh 1080 -dcc nv12 -lib sw -o VppOut_SW.nv12

One quick question: are you ok to use d3d11?

Best wishes,

Anna

Yes, but I am already using d3d11 memory on Windows8 onwards, and system memory or d3d9 memory on windows7 OS (as my product needs to support all OS from Win7 onwards).

Are you not seeing this issue if use d3d11? I observed this issue first on Win8.1 OS using d3d11 itself.

The question was about the fix. So we can only fix it for d3d11.

Ok. Though I need the fix for windows7 OS also(i.e. using system or d3d9 memory), but if d3d11 fix is quick I can start using that at least for windows8 and 10 also.

Has Intel fixed this issue in driver? Please let me know if there is any update.

I am facing the same issue. Worried to see this post being unresolved from past 2 years.
