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.

Given a vertical stack of scan lines, this technique alternately captures the 242 odd and 242 even lines of an image at 60 Hz, ultimately producing an "interlaced" image having an effective frame rate of 30 fps and a flicker-flee projection rate of 60 Hz.
ST has developed and tested high performance algorithms for MPEG-2 to MPEG-2 bitstream and MPEG-2 to H.264 bitstream transcoding, both with bit-rate, frame rate and resolution change supported.
The more expensive models offer more storage for video archives, higher video frame rates, programmable video motion detection, computer network compatibility and a growing list of other sophisticated features.
To work within practical data rate limits, video conferencing software usually gives you a small window, reduced frame rates and lower audio quality.
There is a long history in psychophysics of the study of frame rate. Most of the research has focused on critical flicker frequency, which is the frame rate at which individual frames in a displayed series are no longer perceptible and the series of frames is perceived as one continuous display.
NASCAR Racing was a dreadful game, with a frame rate struggling to get into two-hand figures in SVGA mode; backdrops that never matched the detail levels on the cars, and a complex front end that buried the intricacies of car mechanics behind a million mouse clicks.
Generally, the higher the frame rate of the camera, the shorter the time interval that can be recorded and the more complex the timing to capture an event.

Skyrim runs at a native 4K resolution and down-samples, but again suffers from frame rate drops.
The white paper also looks at how this changes production, post production, distribution and display of finished work, and provides a formula for calculating the size of frames with different resolution, dynamic range, colour gamut and frame rate.
