The motion compensated temporal �ltering (MCTF) using 5/3 LeGall bi orthogonal wavelet �lter requires bidirectional motion es- timation (ME) that is computationally intensive. Hence encoder of Scal- able Video Coder(SVC) becomes very slow. This paper proposes Motion Prediction technique for Fast Block Based ME during MCTF in SVC. The technique exploits center biased characteristics of motion vectors. It applies coarse and tne search of any fast block based ME, only to the first pair of frames in a group of pictures (GOP). The generated motion vectors (MVs) are supplied to the next consecutive frames and even to subsequent temporal levels, that is used to initiate the one search. The technique signi�cantly reduces the number of blocks that undergoes ME in a GOP and hence reduces computational complexity of ME in MCTF. The proposed algorithm is implemented in MC-EZBC and there is no visible variations in the quality of the decoded video.
