Definitions for "Frames per second"
The number of frames displayed on screen per second. Also known as frame rate. When you export video to a QuickTime file, the different formats have different FPS rates. Lower FPS rates produce smaller files.
The rate at which the graphics processor renders new frames, or full screens of pixels. Benchmarks and games use this metric as a measurement of a GPU's performance. A faster GPU will render more frames per second, making the application more fluid and responsive to user input.
The number of video frames displayed each second (also called frame rate). Most people perceive continuous motion at about 17 fps. A common standard for video delivered over the web is 15 fps, which reduces file sizes substantially (since most video is shot at roughly 30 fps) but still but allows for fairly smooth motion.
Used to describe how many frames can a motor drive or winder handle automatically.
