frame rate

frame rate

(graphics)
The number of frames of an animation which are displayed every second, measured in frames per second (fps). The higher the frame rate, the smoother the animation will appear but the more processing power and system bandwidth is required.

At less than 30 fps, the human eye can see the new pictures coming onto the screen.

frame rate

Video is captured and played back as a sequence of static (still) images, each image being one "frame." The frame rate is the number of these frames per second. For example, movie film is shot at 24 frames per second (fps), while NTSC video is shot at 29.97 interlaced fps, and high-definition video at 30 and 60 fps. Frame rate conversion is the duplication or reduction of frames in order to display the content on a video device with a different frame rate. See fps.
