So wait...what's the frame rate of our eyes?

Cameras, movies, computers, and televisions all work on the principle of frames to create the illusion of motion. So...what about our eyes? Do they have a frame ...

China's RoboSense raises $45M for auto lidar development Last month the company said that it had also developed a high-performance lidar system intended to replicate the “gaze” function of the human eye – but at a massively reduced cost compared with rival 64-line lidar units. “The algorithms achieve object [...]

World's fastest camera freezes time at 10 trillion frames per second He and his colleagues, led by Caltech's Lihong Wang, have developed what they call T-CUP: the world's fastest camera, capable of capturing 10 trillion (1013) frames per second (Fig. 1). This new camera literally makes it possible to freeze time to see [...]

Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Review The GTX 2080 Ti is the first consumer graphics card I've seen that's capable of running Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 60 frames per seconds in 4K with graphic settings maxed out. On average, the GTX 2080 Ti's average FPS benchmark was just shy of the  [...]

Christopher Nolan and Paul Thomas Anderson Declare War on That Hideous “Motion-Smoothing” TV Setting the “soap-opera effect” or “motion interpolation” is a high-def television set's way of adding artificial frames to a moving image to, theoretically, make it look crisper by reducing the natural blurring effect that occurs when motion is shot at 24 [...]

Human Eye Frames Per Second

Frame rate (also known as frame frequency) is the frequency (rate) at which an imaging device produces unique consecutive images called frames. The term applies equally well to computer graphics, video cameras, film cameras, and motion capture systems. Frame rate is most often expressed in frames per second (FPS) and is also expressed in progressive scan monitors as hertz (Hz).
The human eye and its brain interface, the human visual system, can process 10 to 12 separate images per second, perceiving them individually. The visual cortex holds onto one image for about one-fifteenth of a second, so if another image is received during that period an illusion of continuity is created, allowing a sequence of still images to give the impression of motion. Early silent films had a frame...

It's the same nonsense that surrounds frame rate - the human eye can exceed 200 frames per second - but it's absolute.

Research: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

And by that, I mean, who literally framed our heroic bunny character, Roger, into his starring role in the historic film he co-stared in with Bob Hoskins in 1988. Produced by Steven Speilberg, this labor of love Who Framed Roger Rabbit was... Greenlit as a $30 million film, it eventually cost $70 million to make, in an era long before $100 million blockbusters became standard. It came close to shutdown numerous times, especially as the production schedule kept stretching further, as test audiences rejected the early cuts without completed animation, and as Zemeckis realized it was impossible to edit the film to use... Live actors and animation had been mixed before but never in this way, with animated characters seamlessly, tangibly interacting with physical actors and objects, or on this scale, with most of the film focused on animated stars.

Why Frame Rate Matters

GIF We all know the motion picture is a lie. That movement on screen? It's just a bunch of still images. Still images that seem more like believable, realistic, lifelike motion the faster they flicker along. Faster is better, and that 48 frame-per-second version of The Hobbitwas just the beginning.What is frame rate anyway? If you understand how film projectors work, you'll know that the individual images that make up a film strip are run through a projector assembly and flash consecutively...

6 Frame Rate Facts You Didn't Know

Gamers will vociferously defend the superiority of 60 frames per second over 30. Moviegoers will lament the loss of that cinematic feel when watching The Hobbit at 48 FPS rather than the traditional 24.With frame rate issues once again in the headlines, I thought this an opportune time to revisit the great frame rate debate in video games and cinema. But we'll take a different angle - rather than try to convince you that something is better or worse, here are six facts about frame rates that...
