Help a newbie understand FPSOverride better :)
« on: May 08, 2013, 06:32:57 PM »
 I am trying to understand FPSOverride better. I am newly introduced to this feature..

By recording 3FPS @ 24FPS playback, is the interval = 3 seconds each frame ? And you need 8 frames to get 1 second playback @ 24FPS ?

2FPS @ 24FPS playback, interval = 2s each frame, 12 frames (24s) to get 1 second playback @ 24FPS
1FPS @ 24FPS playback, interval = 1s each frame, 24 frames (24s) to get 1 second playback @ 24FPS
0.5FPS @ 24FPS playback, interval = 2s each complete frame ? (?) to get 1 second playback @ 24FPS
0.25FPS @ 24FPS playback, interval = 4s each complete frame ? (?) to get 1 second playback @ 24FPS
0.20FPS @ 24FPS playback, interval = 5s each complete frame ? (?) to get 1 second playback @ 24FPS


Correct me if I am wrong and I am very open to learn more about this.
Thanks

For 1 sec playbac at 24FPS you need 24 (Frames Per Second)
at 3FPS you have 3 Frames Per Second so each frame is take at 1/3 of second instead of at 1/24 8 time slower
So your script also is going 8 time slower and you have to multiply your desired seconds to 8 to have enough frames for reproducing it at 24FPS
