How and where does pitch get set? I see that
Encoder has a line
MSDK_MEMCPY_VAR(m_pVppSurfaces.Info, &(m_mfxVppParams.mfx.FrameInfo), sizeof(mfxFrameInfo));
This line sets the info struct of mfxFrameSurface1
But where does the surface.data.pitch get set of mfxFrameSurface1
Does it automatically mults width by 8 bytes and since we alight the width with MSDK_ALIGN16 ?
The macro is defined here, so it belongs to our sample code.
Let me know if this answers your question.
That does not answer my question. My question is not the macro.
My question is HOW and Where does the pData.Pitch get set in Load Next frame.
How does the system calculate the PITCH value ?
In the encoder example we never set the pitch, so it must be calculated somewhere. I know how pitch is usually calculated and what it means but I can not see the code that sets that value in the example or commons sample code.
Since different frame type might have different pitch, I think this could be implementation of the virtual frame allocation function, here may be one of them:
Is this helpful?
I found that function myself before but that pitch is a local variable in that function (line 171) and it is used to allocate the surface size.
But It is never set to to the mfxFrameSurface1.data.pitch.
UPDATE as i was looking at https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/628470 mfxFrameData struct I see that pitch is a union and I now understand because I see that PItchLow is set in the LockFrame. PitchLow is actually Pitch pretty much.
Thanks you pointed me to the right file
