Definition: fps

(Frames Per Second) The measurement of the speed of motion sequences such as movies, TV and animation. Although motion displayed electronically seems continuous, it is actually a rapid sequence of static images called "frames." The simulation of movement requires 15 fps. Movies are shot at 24 fps, while video is captured at 24, 30 and 60 fps. See CIF, DTV, rate stretch tool and deinterlace.
