 Frame rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The frame rate is related to but not identical to a physiological concept called the flicker fusion threshold or flicker fusion rate.
These rates would be impractical for the actual frame rate of most film mechanisms so the shutter in the projection devices is actually arranged to interrupt the light two or three times for every film frame.
The "frame rate" of interlaced systems is usually defined as the number of complete frames (pairs of fields) transmitted each second (25 or 30 in most broadcast systems).

Frame rate, or frame (The number of occurrences within a given time period (usually 1 second)) frequency, is the measurement of how quickly an imaging device can produce unique consecutive images called (One of a series of still transparent photographs on a strip of film used in making movies) frames.

 Joz - Frames Per Second   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
60 frames per second vs. 30 frames per second has been one of the most contested ideas around the web and in print for the last year.
Now because the frame rate is 1/2 the refresh, transitions between frames go a lot smoother than if you had say a 72 Hz refresh and a movie playing at 30 fps.
Each frame is put together in the frame buffer of the video card and is then sent out through the RAMDAC to the monitor.

Motion blur in movies, which run at 24 frames per second are designed for the big screen projector, which blasts movies to the screen, each frame in it's entirety in the widescreen format one frame at a time.
Well, with progressive scanning (the XBOX supports this with it's NVidia GPU), each frame is drawn on each pass meaning 60Hz supports 60 Frames Per Second, but as you've learned although the hertz and FPS are related, the hertz of the display does not necessarily mean that it is the frames per second.
The frame is scanned all at once, thus the refresh rate can equal the Frames Per Second, but the Frames Per Second isn't going to go past the Refresh Rate because it's not possible on the display.

 What is fps / FPS? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
(1) (pronounced as separate letters) Short for frames per second (and typically written in lower case), a measure of how much information is used to store and display motion video.
Each frame is a still image; displaying frames in quick succession creates the illusion of motion.
Television in the U.S., for example, is based on the NTSC format, which displays 30 interlaced frames per second (60 fields per second).

"Frames Per Second is an exciting, well-written thriller that proves Bill Eidson belongs within the upper echelons of the sub-genre.
Open Frames Per Second at your own peril and don't say I didn't warn you, because this book will grab you by the throat and defy you to put it down.
Frames per Second is Eidson's best, a novel of menace that will keep you awake and sweating through tomorrow morning."

The effective frame rate was thus increased to 48 frames per second (16 x 3 = 48).
When adding sound to picture, the 16 frame per second rate proved to be too slow when attempting to record optical film sound tracks.
Therefore with a film rate of 24 frames per second, the viewer is actually seeing illumination of the screen at a rate of 48 times per second as with the Lumiere example above.

The projectionist would start the film on the first projector, and when it was 11 seconds from the end of the reel, a small circle flashed briefly in the corner of the screen.
Another small circle flashed when one second was left and the projectionist pressed a changeover pedal to start the second projector and stop the first one.
While the second reel was rolling, the projectionist removed the first reel on the other projector and threaded the third reel.

 D3 HELP | Frames Per Second (FPS), Refresh Rate and Vertical Sync | By Chris "Mobius" Davies
There is a lot of confusion about Frame Rate, Frames Per Second or FPS as it is often known.
Many people believe that frame rates above 60 per second are a waste of time and money as the eye can't detect all those extra frames.
Frames Per Second are important because each "frame" drawn on your screen is a rock solid, stand-alone image - fully detailed, with no "motion blur".

Initially, moving pictures meant only the movement that is perceived when a string of celluloid-recorded images are projected at a rate of 16 or more frames per second (see persistence of vision).
Originally moving picture film was shot at a nominal 16 frames per second, but was changed to 24 frames per second with the introduction of sound.
Other improvements since the late 1800s include the mechanization of cameras, allowing them to record at a consistent speed, the invention of more sophisticated filmstocks, allowing directors to film in increasingly dim conditions, and the development of synch sound, allowing sound to be recorded at the same speed as its corresponding video.

 AMO.NET America's Multimedia Online (Human Eye Frames Per Second)
Because Human Eyes are capable of implmenting motion blur, and since the frames of a movie are being drawn all at once, motion blur is implemented in such few frames, which results in a lifelike perceptual picture.
A picosecond is one trillionth of a second, so in reality, theoretically, we can calculate our eyes "response time" and then on to theoretical frames per second (but I won't even go there now).
If our eyes only saw frames (IE: 30 images a second), like a single lens reflex camera, we'd see images pop in and out of existance and that would really be annoying and not as advantagous to us in our three dimensional space and bodies.

Frames Per Second A Return to the “Golden Age” of Crime Fiction
FRAMES PER SECOND is an exciting, fast paced, well-written thriller with action that never lets up, tension that is almost palpable, and terrifying violence.
After reading “Frames Per Second” I quickly read the rest of Edison’s novels (with the exception of “The Little Brother” which I haven’t been able to locate yet since it is out of print) I highly recommend Bill Eidson, his novels won’t disappoint.

 [mythtv-users] Frames per second?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
It is always hard to be certain from these sorts of descriptions (the one above and your earlier one), but what you describe sounds like the capture process is dropping frames for some reason.
The usual one is that the image is sufficiently rich in complexity that the encoder can't work fast enough on one frame before it has to get the next one, so some are lost.
In this context, "complexity" is anything that makes encoding harder to do, including simple noise (I get a 50% drop rate in frames when there is nothing connected to the Television input, for example).

The Frames chart shows the rate, in frames per second, at which an ISDN interface, modem, DS0 channel, or voice gateway sent and received data.
A higher-than-expected rate of frames might indicate that too much traffic is being sent through the interface or that physical equipment has a problem.
You might observe that an interface is receiving or sending a large number of frames per second at the same time that it is experiencing a high rate of errors.

 Animation at opensource encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Animation refers to the process in which each frame of a film or movie is produced individually, whether generated as a computer graphic, or by photographing a drawn image, or by repeatedly making small changes to a model (see claymation and stop motion), and then photographing the result.
When the frames are strung together and the resulting film is viewed at a speed of 16 or more frames per second, there is an illusion of continuous movement (due to the persistence of vision).
Generating such a film is very labour intensive and tedious, though the development of computer animation has greatly sped up the process.

Japanese, German and Dutch engineers have designed the world's fastest digital video camera, capable of recording at up to 1 million frames per second, according to a statement from a group of researchers released on Thursday.
The camera uses a special CCD (charge-coupled device) to capture up to 103 frames recorded at 1 million frames per second.
These can be replayed at 10 frames per second for 10.3 seconds.

 SONY’S FASTEST NEW INDUSTRIAL VIDEO CAMERA ACQUIRES IMAGES AT 100 FRAMES PER SECOND   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
PARK RIDGE, N.J. Oct. 3, 2000 -When traditional image capture frame rates of 30 to 60 frames per second are too slow, inspection and high-speed application users can now turn to Sony's latest analog video camera -- the XC-HR300 -- to produce high-quality images at up to 100 full frames per second.
At the same time, this camera doubles the pixel clock—the speed at which data is output from the camera.
Like Sony's XC-8500CE video camera, the XC-HR300 video camera is compatible with frame grabbers that support dual video input for a single image and are capable of at least 29.5 MHz image digitization.

 D70 less than 3 frames per second
Hello, I am finding on my D70 that the only way to get to 3 frames per second is to shoot in raw or raw+jpeg mode.
All other combinations of jpeg only settings result in something slower that sounds like 2 frames per second.
All this is tested with a San Disk Ultra II card, moreover at the slower rate the built in frames buffer doesn't come close to being exhausted, and the last frame is written into the card in no time at all.
