Still picture coding technique such as Adaptive Interpolative Coding are always applied onto intraframe image compression in video coding algorithms. Coding fidelity is always utilized in measuring the performance of still picture coding methods. However, the compatibility between intraframe coding and motion compensation techniques. In this paper, a popular motion estimation method known as Block Matching Algorithm (BMA) is adopted in reconstructing interframe image based on the contents of the intraframe images encoded with different still picture coding techniques. The compatibility of the still picture coding techniques can be reflected from the coding fidelities of interframe images. In experimental result, adaptive interpolative coding with edge prediction technique is proved to have better compatibility with BMA and better visual quality is achieved.
