  • Publication number: 20200169726
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a method and apparatus for deriving motion prediction information and performing encoding and/or decoding on a video using the derived motion prediction information. Each of an encoding apparatus and a decoding apparatus generates a list for inter prediction of a target block. In the generation of the list, whether motion information of a candidate block is to be added to a list is determined based on information about the target block and the motion information. When the motion information passes a motion prediction boundary check, the motion information is added to the list. By means of the motion prediction boundary check, available motion information for prediction of the target block is selectively added to the list.
