Video - Frame per Second

About

Frame rate (expressed in frames per second or fps) is the frequency (rate) at which consecutive images called frames appear on a display. The term applies equally to film and video cameras, computer graphics, and motion capture systems. Frame rate may also be called the frame frequency, and be expressed in hertz.

Rendering and FPS

  • If a video application can not put up 1 new picture, or frame in the buffer because of performance before each screen refreshes (ie every 10ms)
  • the frame rate drops (frame are not shown),
  • the content judders on screen (often referred to as jank)
