During the process of making a video, the person in charge of creating this content must have in their knowledge the use and handling of the terms implemented in the audiovisual medium , such as frames or frames per second.
Mastering these terms will help during the process of recording and editing a video . And with the use of a good editor like CapCut , you can take advantage of and experiment with the use of frames per second to have favorable results in a video of any type.

What is the main function of frames per second in videos?
As is well known, a video is nothing more than a series of moving images. For these images to move, they must be reproduced one after another to give the corresponding illusion. Frames per second (also called FPS) corresponds to the number of images that are transmitted during one second of video .
FPS plays the role of distributing the number of images that are played in the video. If it is a high or low number of frames, the quality of the video will depend , so it is a very important aspect to consider during the recording process as well as in the editing process.
What are the regular FPS measurements at which videos should be recorded?
The amount of frames per second can be varied depending on how the editor wishes. In general terms, the videos in the different media are usually recorded in 24 or 30 FPS , being a standard measurement where the video is reproduced in a decent way and with good fluidity.
Likewise, a fairly common metric to use is 60 FPS. And by having a large number of images per second, it will result in a video with much more fluid in motion.
How does modifying FPS affect your edited videos?
During the video editing process, you have the alternative of playing it at a different FPS amount than the one that was recorded . This can help in the quality of the video in case it is edited at a lower FPS number than the one recorded. If a video that is at 60 FPS is changed to 30 FPS in the editor, the quality and fluency will be better.
In which situations is it useful to use higher or lower FPS?
When creating a video, you must be clear about the purpose and the desired result. The effect of the frames per second should be kept in mind, as these will determine the speed, quality and fluidity of movement within the video . The higher or lower amount of FPS can be very useful for different situations.
The resource of using a lower amount of FPS, is used to make videos in fast motion (also called ‘time lapse’), because due to its lack of details in the movement, it can achieve a cleaner speed effect. Likewise, it is beneficial to shoot videos at this FPS rate due to its low storage weight.
In slower speed
Generally, to shoot slow motion video, you have to record at a high frame rate per second. Due to its large amount of information within the video, the slow motion effect can be captured in a more detailed and smooth way .
How can you change the FPS of your video in CapCut?
Fortunately, for editors, the CapCut application has a complete and extensive variety of tools and effects that can be used to professionally edit videos and even photos . These functions include changing the amount of FPS that will be reproduced .
Within the app, once the editing is finished, you can choose how many FPS the video will be played at. This setting will appear when the final video is exported, and among the options is to play the video at 24, 25, 30, 50 or 60 FPS. When choosing the desired quantity, you must click on ‘export’ and the video will be saved in the computer’s gallery.
