FPS (Frames Per Second)

A video is a consecutive appearance of still images which is called frames. And FPS is an abbreviation of Frames Per Second, which means the number of frames appearing in a display per second. A rate of 24 FPS is a standard for the conventional film industry, and 30 FPS is commonly used in most video files.

If you set FPS to 10 when recording a video with Honeycam, it captures 10 frames per second.

With higher FPS, a video becomes smoother. But the high FPS may increase the size of the file, and especially in GIF format, the increase is considerable due to its low compression ratio. When you create an animated image file, it’s recommended to set FPS to about 10, not larger than 20.
