Claim of US Patent No. 10,368,076

1. A decoding method, comprising:determining whether a first neighboring block located at a left side of a current block or a second neighboring block located at an upper side of the current block is available for deriving an intra prediction mode of a current block;
deriving a first intra prediction mode based on the determined availability for the first neighboring block or a second intra prediction mode based on the determined availability for the second neighboring block,
wherein the first intra prediction mode is derived as DC mode when the first neighboring block is not available and is derived as an intra prediction mode of the first neighboring block when the first neighboring block is available, and
wherein the second intra prediction mode is derived as DC mode when the second neighboring block is not available and is derived as an intra prediction mode of the second neighboring block when the second neighboring block is available;
determining whether the first intra prediction mode is identical to the second intra prediction mode;
obtaining an intra prediction mode of the current block based on a plurality of candidate intra prediction modes; and
obtaining prediction samples of the current block based on the intra prediction mode of the current block,
wherein when the first intra prediction mode is not identical to the second intra prediction mode, the method comprises:
deriving a first candidate intra prediction mode from the first intra prediction mode and a second candidate intra prediction mode from the second intra prediction mode;
setting a third candidate intra prediction mode equal to a planar mode when none of the first candidate intra prediction mode and the second candidate intra prediction mode is the planar mode;
setting the third candidate intra prediction mode equal to a DC mode when one of the first candidate intra prediction mode and the second candidate intra prediction mode is the planar mode and the other is not the DC mode; and
setting the third candidate intra prediction mode equal to a vertical mode when one of the first candidate intra prediction mode and the second candidate intra prediction mode is the planar mode and the other is the DC mode, and
wherein when the first intra prediction mode is identical to the second intra prediction mode and both the first intra prediction mode and the second intra prediction mode are the planar mode or the DC mode, the method comprises:
setting the first candidate intra prediction mode equal to the planar mode;
setting the second candidate intra prediction mode equal to the DC mode; and
setting the third candidate intra prediction mode equal to the vertical mode.
