Where to download or watch online 60 fps movies


Lately, we've been hearing a lot about the fact that some movies are available in 60 fps. Popular director James Cameron is shooting a sequel to Avatar in a similar format. And he is known for his thorough approach to quality cinema. Let's figure out what it is together. If you're not interested in reading about the 60 FPS format, go to the list of sites where you can download movies.

    What is FPS

    The acronym FPS ("Frames per Second") literally means "frames per second". Therefore the FPS is quite simple: FPS is the number of frames per second seen during video playback.

    What is the difference between standard 24 and 60 frames per second

    The well-known fact that the human eye perceives 24-25 frames per second is at odds with the fact that 60 frames per second is the quality required when shooting a movie. But this is not the case at all. If you study the subject carefully, you will find that with the standard 24 frames, moving objects appear blurry. This happens because of the shutter speed of 1/24 second. If you increase the shutter speed, the image becomes much sharper.

    Elementary example would be a professional camera. A friend of mine has one. He showed me the difference "in practice". We were shooting a moving stream of cars. With exposure time of 24 frames the image turned out blurred, the flow of cars merged into a solid line. When the shutter speed was increased, each car was visible individually. A high frame rate means smoother, more realistic motion during playback.

    What is remarkable about movies with 60 fps frame rate (with increased smoothness)

    Many of us have noticed the image strobing when watching an action scene in a modern movie. And the blurring is noticeable in both 2D and 3D scenes. This effect is due to the fact that almost all films are shot with a low frame rate (24 per second). The human brain can cope with a higher frame rate, as evidenced by the use of 3D technology.

    Tripleflash technology is used in all cinemas. It consists of showing the same image to the right and left eye three times, and alternately. This contributes to increased comfort of perception, but does not add smoothness to the image. Motion picture companies are well aware of the strobing effect, so they minimize the scenes where it can occur.

    The driving force behind the move into 60 fps cinema is the aforementioned James Cameron. Since the release of his film Avatar in 3D, this technology has been booming. So he's championed the spread of 60 fps technology.

    Films with high frame rates delight the viewer with smooth, crisp visuals, especially when watching high action scenes. Programs about nature or sports, where the emphasis is on every detail, are mind-blowing. The brain processes twice as much information in the same amount of time. Consequently, it is as if you are watching the same event but for twice as long. You have time to look at details you weren't paying attention to before. Understanding of the action scenes increases, especially the mass fights or battles look good. It becomes clear "who, with whom, and from where", and the feeling of useless movement disappears.

    Requirements for playback devices

    In addition to high smoothness, there is another undeniable plus: Video in 60 fps format can be watched on any device: notebook; PC; desktop media player; tablet; smartphone; TV. The type of display does not matter, it can be an LCD or CRT.

    However, the hardware requirements for a device capable of 60 FPS video playback are relatively high:

    • Video card support for 576p-720p-1080p;
    • screen resolution of at least 60Hz;
    • Recent memory of the player is more than 300MB;
    • Single core CPU with a frequency of 2000 GHz.
