In this letter, we study the R-D properties of independent sources based on MSE and SSIM, and compare the bit allocation performance under the MINAVE and MINMAX criteria in video encoding. The results show that MINMAX has similar results in terms of average distortion with MINAVE by using SSIM, which illustrates the consistency between these two criteria in independent perceptual video coding. Further more, MINMAX results in lower quality fluctuation, which shows its advantage for perceptual video coding.
