Thread: FPS to MPH

    FPS to MPH

    I've got a scene with some cars driving in it. There must be some way to figure out how fast the cars are going in MPH, anyone know what it is? I've never been very good with Math. I think I recall there used to be a speedometer plugin that did this, but I doubt it's available for 64 bit.

    You just need to plug in a few bits of info into a calculator such as this one. This will give you an average speed over a defined distance.

    If your scale is not 1:1 real world, you'll need to do some math to adjust for the difference, though.

    It may be useful for you to right click in any of the position channels in the graph editor and check show speed. For me it gives it in m/s but changing units in preferences to miles will probably give you miles/second.

    Another .. just in case you don't like grey.

    If you're even remotely savy with looking at code, just do a right-click and view the source of the page. You will see all the formulas there. Straight forward and simple.

    That's an interesting idea, I'll have to look at that. I already use Show Velocity to get things nice and smooth.
