What I want to achieve is to run the encoding software on two nearly identical video files sequentially until the two processes reach the motion estimation step. Then I would like them to operate collectively with each process looking outside of its particular video to the other for possible matches to be used for motion estimation. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Let me digress. What I want is for two instances of the same program to share data at one specific step in their algorithm. I know that having more than one master thread is an oxymoron, but is it possible to trick OpenMP to do what I want. For instance, could I write a program in C++ that creates the two processes and have OpenMP treat the processes like threads?
