The frame rate is the number of frames shown per second in video. It plays an important role in determining the motion and look of the final video. The frame rate ranges from 24 frames per second (fps) to 60 fps.
Higher frame rates create smoother, more fluid motion while lower frame rates result in choppy, stuttered motion. In animation, high frame rates achieve a more realistic motion while in live-action filming, the standard frame rate is 24 fps but higher frame rates produce slow-motion effects.
Frame rate influences the video’s overall look and feel. High frame rates give a more cinematic look, while lower frame rates provide a raw, documentary-style look. Camera selection determines frame rate, but software like Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro can adjust it in post-production.
