FPS definition

FPS is the number of individual images (frames) displayed per second in a video or animation. The higher the FPS, the smoother the video or animation will appear. Common FPS values include 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, 60, and even higher for certain types of content. The highest FPS that can be achieved in theory is limited by the display technology and the human eye’s ability to perceive changes in images. Currently, the highest FPS that is achievable for most content is around 300-500 FPS for high-speed cameras and specialized displays. For common displays, like computer monitors and television sets, the maximum FPS is typically around 60-120 FPS, depending on the display technology and other factors.

Is a higher FPS always better?

Although higher FPS generally results in smoother and more fluid motion, it is not always better. It all depends on the content that’s being displayed, the display itself, and each person’s preferences.

Fast-paced action games will look better in high FPS because the animation will be smoother and the controls more responsive. However, videos filmed at 24 FPS will look unnatural when displayed at a higher FPS, and while some people prefer this, it is usually not what the creators have intended.
