Hi all !

I read recent thread “best way to render/handle 25fps native aeps for 29.97 use?” and have more generic question for all VideoHive buyers. I understand needed fps depend on purpose. is it for TV or WEB or some other release and depend on country PAL /NTSC. But generally what fps is your preference? (or most offen case? or default in your video editing software?) for footage you buy and for AE projects and any other products you buy or create. Do you ever search footage by fps filter or may be not,

You may explain in detail or please just answer shortly if you want:
- 25 or
- 29.97 or
- 24 or
- fps really does not matter for you, most important is great content.

Thank you!

Best Regards, Andrey

I like 24, because there’s a standard and well accepted way to convert it to PAL (25) and NTSC (29.97).

I also like 25, ‘cos it’s almost exactly the same as 24 and with a little bit of jiggery-pokery you can convert that to 29.97 too. That doesn’t work in reverse… from 30 to 24 or 25, because 24 into 30 is done with a 3:2 pull down over 60 fields.

I like the way 24/25 feels too… filmic. And I like PAL ‘cos I live in Europe. PAL always was a smarter system than NTSC . Cue flame war? :)

25 is the best choice I think!

unless you’re one of the many USA / north american customers, which are probably 70%+ of your paying buyers—we prefer 29.97 or 30fps since that’s our NTSC broadcast standard. it’s not a big deal though, I’ve rendered other framerates and they ingest/work fine in my NLE for web video renders.

I work 29.97 as you mention probably you are right that 70% of our customers are from US/CANADA

if we speak about after effects projects, one can change the frame rate, no?

I guess that about 99% of those US customers are not buying projects for TV broadcast though.

As I mentioned, 24fps works with 59.94 field NTSC . (i.e. US broadcast TV). That’s how feature films get on US TV . In Europe, feature films are sped up by 4% to make them fit 25fps. Yep. Feature films on TV / DVD are shorter in Europe. Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? :)

But that makes 24fps pretty much the most all round format. On top of which it feels nice… like a feature film.
