AHHH, Frame Rates

[ LiB ] 


Choosing the right frame rate for a Flash movie can be a tricky proposition. There's so much to consider. If you want a universal answer, though, go with 12 (Flash default). It's going to work for just about every situation. If you want a better answer than that, you'll need to choose a rate that is going to be the best for your audience. It also depends on what kind of content you are publishing. For example, if you are publishing to a QuickTime video file for use in video production, you'll want to set your frame rate to 30fps. Here are some of my recommendations:




Basic animation

Low-end web user


Basic animation/interactivity

Average web user


Timed scripting/basic animation

High-end web user


Broadcast video

Video editor


Of course, these are just recommendations. You should determine your ideal frame rate by testing your content for your audience. If all else fails, fall back on 12.
