The term FPS is an acronym, and it stands for “Frames per second”. When you create a video, you capture thousands of individual images in a video sequence. Those individual images are frames, and the frequency with which those frames appear in a second is FPS. Frames-per-second affects the way we perceive motion in a video. When you capture and display only a few frames per second, you miss some of the detail of the movement. As a result, the video may appear choppy. On the flip side, when you capture and display more frames per second, you uncover the motion within your shot. With a higher frame rate, you see smoother action.
