Forums - Movies Discussion - 24 frames per second is starting to look awkward in 4k.

I prefer film in...

24 fps. 28 62.22%
 
30 fps. 3 6.67%
 
48 fps. 4 8.89%
 
60 fps. 4 8.89%
 
North of 60.... 3 6.67%
 
Any/indifferent/comments/middle America. 3 6.67%
 
Total:45

Don't quote me on this, but isn't 24 fps the minimum required for the human brain to interpret motion, and not just a series of still images? Maybe they are just following the law of minimum efford...

I absolutely hate filmed content in 60fps. It always look bizarre to me, hyperrealistic and takes away the cinematic element. It could that the content is not natively filmed in that FPS but for 24fps-30fps for film >>> 60fps

 



And in my opinion lower FPS (obviously not too low) makes action look much better. Too high of fluidity reduces the impact of the movements and sense of speed.



Yeah, I find it quite noticeable during fast motion scenes. The Hobbit movies were filmed at 48 fps as I recall and some people claimed that watching them made them sick, but I thought they looked great *shrugs*

It used to be a technical reason nowadays we simply lack the storage on a cheap disc or the bandwith to stream native 4K HDR film in 60fps. It takes 2.5 times as much data to stream 60fps than 24fps.

Other than that and more importantly some people think it looks odd, which is probably why the hobbit was an experiment for 48 FPS and remained just that, even the sequel didn't support it. 



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Yes. 24 fps was the standard for technical reasons for many years yet people, critics and creators are still beating the drums sayong it looks better than higher rates and should be kept as the stnadard. Like those fools who used to say vinal is better for it's flaws. It seems to be all nostalgia based and no reality to it at all. I think it may just e social engineering so the elite don't have to go and replace all their infrastructure and tech and the streaming service don't need to fouble bandwith. Or maybe it's just foolish people being foolish or like you said, lazy and doing the bare minimum. 

Well, technically vinyl is better than some digital formats like MP3, due to the way they are compressed (again, don't quote me on this), but regardless of that, there is a massive problem with sharing and storing any kind of video format. The more quality it has, the more size it occupies, so a company like Google, that owns not only Youtube but many other services dedicated to storing digital stuff, might look at the sheer amount of money needed to keep everything in order and just consider it not worth the efford. Just imagine the everyday bill of just YouTube when it comes to infraestructure, electricity, hardware to storage everything... Cutting corners might be needed to slow down the monumental expenses.

24 fps should be illegal in 2019. Period.



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

I really can't tell the difference between 30 fps and 60 fps. So the framerate in movies doesn't matter to me either. On top of that I don't have a 4K tv set either and the majority of my movie collection is on DVD's.



Higher frame rates look awful in film. It makes sets and effects look bad. Also the comment about vinyl is just factually wrong. Vinyl is the least compressed way to listen to recorded music. It has flaws, but in terms of range vinyl is superior to cds, tapes, mp3 etc.



24fps gives it a dream like structure..and its cheaper.

heres a vid about the topic
