An efficient algorithm is proposed to reduce the computation cost of block matching algorithms for motion estimation in video coding. Based on a new insight in block matching algorithms, we extend the successive elimination algorithm to a multilevel case. By using the sum norms of the blocks and the subblocks, tighter and tighter decision boundaries can be obtained for eliminating the search positions. The efficiency of the proposed algorithm combined with the full search algorithm and several fast search algorithms is verified by simulation results
