Useful frame rate comparison tool

September 18th, 2013 by Kevin Bowyer

To make it easier to understand the visual differences between frame rate options, we thought we’d share this handy video frame rate comparison tool with you, and make it available as a free download.

The tool allows you to easily visualise different frame rates ranging from 1 fps to 30 fps, and how this appears as video footage, and is ideal for helping you decide which frame rate best suits your requirements.

More often than not full 25fps or 30fps frame rate is not required and lower framerates are quite sufficient except in circumstances where fast movement needs to be caught. Remember that the higher the framerate, the more data you will be recording, so this comparison tool can save you money in storage alone. For example, if you record at 20 frames per second instead of 10fps you will be recording twice the amount of video data, but with visually very little increase in perceived movement. Framerate increases provide diminishing visual returns for increased recording, processing and storage costs.

Download the frame rate comparison tool (.zip file – right click and choose ‘Save file as..’).
