About Frame Rate

Video consists of several still frames that, when played at the correct speed, create the illusion of continuous motion. At the dawn of the film industry, a playback rate of 16 frames per second was considered the minimum frame rate at which audiences identified a flowing motion rather than a series of flashing stills. The industry settled on 24 frames per second for theatrical release, with American television choosing a frame rate of 30 frames per second. There is now a push for higher frame rates such as 48 and 60 frames per second.
