One example includes obtaining the video data comprising one or more pictures and a first block of a picture having a pixel subject to filtering. A second block is determined to be located in the first slice in a particular relation to the second block. A third block that includes pixels for filtering the pixel is determined to be in a second slice at a diagonal corner of the first block, with filtering across slice boundaries disabled. First one or more pixels of the second block are identified as available for performing loop filtering of the pixel and second one or more pixels of the third block identified as unavailable for performing the loop filtering of the pixel of the first block. The first one or more pixels and the second one or more pixels are padded.
