Frame rate is a term used to describe frames per second, referring to how many frames make up a moving image of a film.
The standard FPS is 24, and that is how many movies are filmed but not always.
Depending on the medium or different region this can differ.
Directors also may want to change it up and use a different frame rate, as did James Cameron in Avatar with 48fps or Ang Lee in Gemini Man with 120fps, though that received criticism.
- Frame rate is how many frames per second in movies
- Still frames compose video, and different mediums and regions demand different frame rates.
- The film rate 24fps is the rate used by most films, though directors sometimes change this up for a more unique look. We are most used to 24fps though.
“the number of frames per second you decide to give to your shot can also drastically change how your project looks and what you can do with the footage”
