History of frame rate changed with the advancement of time. Early silent film had 16 to 24 FPS but since back then camera was hand crank, therefore, the rate of frame during the scene to adjust with the mood. Later on, the frame rate of silent movie was increased between 20 to 26 FPS.
There are three main frame rate standards in the TV and digital cinema industry such as: 24p, 25p, and 30p .There are higher rates as well and new ones are emerging including 48FOS, 50I, 60i, 72P etc. The Hobbit: An unexpected Journey was made at 48FPS.
High frame rates (HFR) are clearer and more realistic. Although, higher frame rates comes at higher cost. But it creates less motion blur however; the choice of frame rate is an aesthetic choice.
