  • Publication number: 20210360284
    Abstract: A prediction method and apparatus for video coding include a set of Merge candidates having an MMVD (Merge mode with motion vector differences (MVD)) candidate are generated. When the current block has a block size belonging to at least one default block size, whether a target candidate in the set of Merge candidates is bi-prediction is determined after the set of Merge candidates is generated. If the target candidate is bi-prediction: the target candidate is replaced by a uni-prediction candidate; the uni-prediction candidate is included in the set of Merge candidates to generate a modified set of Merge candidates; and current motion information associated with the current block is encoded using the modified set of Merge candidates at the video encoder side or the current motion information associated with the current block is decoded at the video decoder side using the modified set of Merge candidates.

  • Publication number: 20210351032
    Abstract: Methods for pre-cleaning substrates having metal and dielectric surfaces are described. The substrate is exposed to a strong reductant to remove contaminants from the metal surface and damage the dielectric surface. The substrate is then exposed to an oxidation process to repair the damage to the dielectric surface and oxidize the metal surface. The substrate is then exposed to a weak reductant to reduce the metal oxide to a pure metal surface without substantially affecting the dielectric surface. Processing tools and computer readable media for practicing the method are also described.
