Hi,


How can you animate at 12 FPS and render at 24 FPS ?

Ryan Roye says you better animate at 12 FPS, but how do you render then at 24 FPS? How do you convert a 12 FPS animation to 24 FPS? ( I hope this isn't a stupid question.)

Hi,

After animating, hit 'd' for display options. Go to general tab and change FPS to 24. All keys (should) scale accordingly. Render.

Simply change the fps setting in general options.

Honestly... its not a very good idea though, you should ideally always work at target framerate, you'll have less cleanup to do later, and its the way everyone works.

The big idea is less button presses, better performance, and less complications in blocking out motions. Some people may feel more comfortable animating at their intended FPS... it just means more work to achieve the exact same result. When you think of animation in terms of time instead of frames, the FPS becomes largely irrelevant because the computer is interpolating all the inbetweening for you. There are very, very few exceptions to this rule (such as any tools or functions that base their actions on FRAMES rather than TIME, such as cycler or boosterlink).

Think of it this way: most people don't spend all of their time in a paint program zoomed all the way in while painting... the concept is identical for animation in general.
