    I love you. People is too fixated on wanting high resolution and high frame rates without even understanding they can't even discern the difference. I even had some clowns claiming they see at 250 fps (when they probably see at 15-20 at most lmao). Glad to see someone understanding. About being weird to the eye, I have an issue with 60fps videos on yt...they hurt my eyes after two I just switch to 480p 24/30fps

    I can tell 48 vs 60, but only in interactive medium. Due to input lag (perceived lag between input and reaction in video games, primarily due to frame rate in the GPU (not always the same as refresh rate of the monitor)) people often can "feel" the difference between frame rates, even if they can't really tell visually. (See the extra credits frame rate video for more information, they are a great channel) Personally, I also think most motion heavy content benefits from higher fidelity of motion due to HFR (think sports and action movies, lower motion content tends to use their signaling/storage better with higher resolution), but sometimes higher frame-rates change very little but use up far more signalling power, processing power, and storage space. It is all a balence

    The literal only time you decreased the framerate from 60 to 48 was for 1 second in 2:56. People will just assume it was a mistake on your end. Don't try to be a smartass and claim people can't tell the difference.

    Had a friend who had incredibly fast reflexes and when we would get together for Lan gaming back in the 90s he would constantly mess with his system if it got below 60 frames per second. He said it looked "stuttery" to him while it looks smooth as glass to everyone else. And it could be measured with a frame rate utility so we could see a number saying it was 57 or 56 frames per second. If you look at testing of professional athletes versus the average human being their reflexes are just quicker. Their nervous systems run faster. They react to events faster in a measurable way.

    It actually makes no difference in your conscious perception of motion once it hits a framerate over 18 or so but your subconscious will notice. This doesn't matter much in movies (unless it's Fight Club) but it matters a lot in reaction based video games. LTT recently even made experiments with high speed cameras to show this increase in reaction times and even hit accuracy. That is why for pro gamers or enthusiasts who play fast paced shooters it actually makes sense to play at higher FPS, even if that means to trade in quality and resolution (e.g. using a 1080p monitor at 240Hz over a 4k monitor at 60Hz). My guess is that while in theory you just need 2 frames to approximate the speed of an object on screen it's more likely that your brain needs a lot more information, because it doesn't "see" in frames per second but perceives vision as a continuous stream of information that is also manipulated on the fly by you visual cortex (blind spot etc.). E.g. if in frame #1 the object enters the screen and in frame #2 it's two pixels further to the right you can theoretically calculate that it's moving 2 pixel /60th of a second -> 120 pixel/second but your brain can't do that this quickly. Given that average human reaction times (motoric reaction to visual stimuli) are at around 200ms it means you see around 12 frames at 60Hz before you react to it and in these 12 frames you have to guess the speed of your target, while at 240Hz you have 4x the amount of frames from which to approximate the speed of your target. More information = more accurate speed approximation = better accuracy and reaction time to on screen motion.

    Just one side note, back then TVs did NOT sincronize the frame rate with the power frequency, they sincronized with the broadcast vertical/horizontal pulses. The reason they chose the frame rate according to the local power frequency was due to studio lighting. If the lights flicker at 60Hz and you film with a 50 fps camera or vice versa you'll get a rolling shadow effect on the picture. This remains true to this day. Most cellphone cameras film at 60 fps, if you are in a 50 Hz region and have flourescent lighting you can see the effect. Tom Scott explains it here:

    To the best of my knowledge, the grid was never used as a clock generator in television sets. the reason frame rates match is that the grid would interfere with the signal, and it looked better when it matched.

    I agree with the ending but to say you cant tell the difference is disingenuous. Like you said, youve been constantly switching between fps, so no ones eyes had time to adjust. Side by side comparisons have been done already by many people. anyone who plays games at a solid 60 FPS feels the difference once it starts dropping far enough below because theyre focusing on it.,the same would happen if someone were atching a movie and the frames shifted randomly to -15 less than where it was. In anycase, i love these videos. ive learned something from each one. even the toipics i thought i understood.

  • JavShephard

    I play games at 30 or 60 fps. If the game wobbles in other odd numbers (like 48 fps), the difference is notable in the judder on screen. However, it is more noticeable with the input. That's why VRR/Freesync/G-Sync are important!

    Maybe it's not the FPS but I get dizzy and have headaches when I select options for say 720p60 or when people only have 60 fps options.. I haven't owned a TV since 2004 ish.. and when I do go to other people's houses I find that various programs on their TV seem wrong and make me dizzy and give me headaches and it feels like everything is moving too fast.. if that's not FPS then I don't know what it is.. and I don't care what you want to call it.. I just have trouble watching it for lengths of time.. Additionally "Into the Spiderverse" I couldn't watch for extended periods of time (had to watch it in min intervals or close my eyes and listen to it instead) but people do say that it's meant to be that way and jerky and they don't particularly like it but it doesn't cause other people headaches it seems.. I know you can't probably explain maybe I have a tumor or something.. I dunno.. but I do know when you said that you'd been randomly changing it.. I initially didn't see anything.. but then I turned up the FPS on the video and the monitor.. and I could see it changing.. If that's not FPS.. I'd love to know what it is.. or what the fuck is wrong with my eyes or brain that causes so many problems for my eyes. Maybe a combination of effects? I dunno. Hope someone can answer this.. but I don't expect an answer.

    I think 60 Hz for monitors is an artifact of the old days. 60Hz is the same as US AC mains frequency. They might as well be using AC mains as a clock signal.

    3:05 I mean it depends a lot on what kind of animation it is. A steady panning shot composed of sharply contrasting parts for example is going to look very different between changes as little as 48 to 60. Playing games at 60 compared to 144 the only real difference I ever notice is camera movement smoothness but I really notice it.
