Is 50 FPS smooth?

The higher the frame rate (i.e. the more frames per second), the smoother the motion representation. Can we mere mortals notice this difference? Indeed we can.

Let’s take a look at 24fps, 30fps and 60fps clips of a happy mallard drinking water. (I filmed and played back the video at those frame rates.) My shutter speed for each clip was the closest available setting to the 180 degree shutter rule, so 1/50th, 1/60th, and 1/ 125. Note that YouTube defaults to playing at 30 fps for some users, so you may need to select 4k60 in the video settings of the third clip to watch it correctly:


If you often suffer from eye fatigue eyes, the higher refresh rate of 60Hz is more beneficial. For those who regularly play heavy games or edit for multiple hours, a monitor with a 60Hz refresh rate makes it easier on the eyes.

If your PC can produce Full HD 50Hz images efficiently, it will have no problem pushing 60Hz. Also, the price of Full HD 50hz and Full HD 60hz monitors are almost identical on the market.

The new video

Here’s a video where I bounce a tennis ball with a racket (yes, it’s a squash racket, but that’s what I had on hand). See how motion blur for 1/50th of a second is exactly the same, and looks good, for 1/25th of a second and 1/50th of a second shutter – you might want to add: obviously. I find the smooth 50fps much more enjoyable to watch than the stuttering/jerky/shaky 24, 25, and 30 (29.97) fps.

I guess it’s less ‘filmic’ or ‘cinematic’ since it doesn’t replicate the jerky movement that cinema has had for decades, but I don’t want my footage to look ‘cinematic’, I want it to look good . In my opinion, the 50fps 1/50th second (360 degree shutter) looks the best.

What is the best frame rate for YouTube?

The chances of your video ending up on YouTube are very high! So, you might be wondering what frame rate to use for editing YouTube videos.

The truth is, you can use any frame rate, as long as it works in favor of your creative idea and doesn’t affect the overall quality of your video. What you should take into consideration, though, is the combination of frame rate and bitrate.

Pourquoi filmer à vitesse élevée ?

Alors quoi bon nous proposing to film at 60 fps, 120 or even 240 fps ? C’est que plus l’appareil filme d’images par seconde, plus elles semblent fluides à la lecture. Wikipedia also explains that «if the number of par second images at the time of projection is higher than that of the tournage, when an acceleration is obtained. Tandis qu’à l’inverse, si le nombre d’images par seconde au moment de la projection est inférieur à celui du tournage, on obtient un ralenti.» When the cameras are in film size 240 images par seconds or plus encore, on peut du coup tenir des ralentis d’une fluidité tout simplement bluffante.
