When the frame size is downscaled for video transcoding, the new motion vector (MV) must be computed. This paper presents an algorithm to utilize the activity measurement by DC value and the number of non-zero quantized DCT coefficients in the residual macroblock to compose the motion vector. It can reduce the complexity for motion estimation and improve the performance of the spatial domain video transcoder.
