Block matching is the most popular one for the motion estimation. It's
used in H.261, H.263 and MPEG-1 codecs. The best matched block is usually
found by using the pixel-domain search methods. Several search strategies
are in the literature such as full search (FS), three step search(TSS) ,
new three step search(NTSS), fast three step search (FTSS), fourstep
search (4SS) and spiral search algorithm (SSA). Here, we are going to
analyse and evaluate the most important block matching algorithms. The
quality and speed will be considered in our analysis.
