Noob: frame rates?
« on: March 26, 2008, 02:11:25 pm »

Thank you for a wonderful program, I wanted to try my hand at modelling and looked at several programs but Anim8or is certainly my favourite.  I've made a few simple models so now want to try some animation.  I'm a bit unclear about frame rates, is it just a question of higher is better quality/slower render or are there other things to take into account?  I think I remember reading somewhere that film animation is 24 fps, is that the best to use?  Any help would be appreciated.  :)

24 fps is standard and is best to use.

Thanks for the quick reply.  That's what I'll use then.

24 as frame rate basically means there is 24 frames per second (or fps) the more frames per second the smoother the animation is.

24 is the standard for films.

i believe some films (wallace and gromit for example) go a bit mad and decide to use a very high frames rate.

wallace and gromit used 60 frames a second.

the higher the frame rate, the longer a movie takes to render.

hope this helped.
