AV Knowledge: The Surprising World of Frame Rates

Frame rate, also commonly described as frames per second (fps), is a term used to describe how many still frames we see in one second. As a filmmaker, this will be one of the first settings you choose - 24, 25, 30. It is generally accepted that 24fps is the standard for "movie" frame rates. North America accepts 30fps broadcasts, and the European broadcast standard is 25fps.
