Claim of US Patent No. 10,136,119

1. A method of decoding video data, the method comprising:determining that a reference index of a reference picture in a reference picture list for predicting a current block, of a first view, corresponds to an inter-view reference picture of a second view, wherein the second view is different than the first view;
based on the determination that the reference index corresponds to the inter-view reference picture and only when the reference index for the current block is determined to correspond to an inter-view reference picture, obtaining, from an encoded bitstream, a block-level view synthesis prediction (VSP) flag that indicates whether the current block is predicted with VSP using at least a portion of a picture synthesized from the inter-view reference picture; and
based on an indication that the current block is predicted with VSP, decoding the current block using VSP.
