Part 1. What Is 60 FPS Anime?

A video is actually a series of still images technically called frames. The number of frames appearing per second on a display is frame rate or frame frequency. Thus, an anime in 60 FPS refers to that 60 consecutive images appear each second. Since higher frame rates deliver more crisp details and smooth motion, theoretically, an anime video with 60 frames each second should achieve more realistic and smooth viewing experience, yet which doesn’t mean anime in 60 FPS will definitely look better than lower frame rate.

Part 2. Does 60 FPS Look Better?

Currently, anime TV series and films are produced at an average of 24 frames (one drawing for every two frames) per second, to bring still figures to life. It is a standard similar to how we see in the real world and also meet anime aesthetic. Besides, many 2D animation studios have used limited animation techniques to produce anime for saving production time and also as innovative artistic devices. Limited animation is an important characteristic of anime. Such techniques involve using common parts from each frames rather than redrawing a scene. Consequently, less details are focused when compared with the Disney-like animation.

By contrast, in despite of more details, 60 FPS production will be a gigantic task, which requires more than double of the expense and time. Even without the cost, while an anime in 60 FPS brings more realistic and smooth viewing experience, it may diminish the distinct animation effect the animator emphasizes on. Of course, 60 FPS still holds remarkable merits on the likes of action or sport anime that involve a lot of motions as it can present more smooth and detailed scenes.

Having said that, some may still be interested to know how a 60 FPS anime looks like. The fact is, there is no any official anime released in 60 FPS at present. But many people have used artificial intelligence applications to convert anime to 60FPS. So can it deliver perfect effects?

Part 3. What is Frames Interpolated 60 FPS Anime

Through a dedicated application, you are able to interpolate frames to anime to improve the frame rate, namely, convert anime to 60FPS. Essentially, it is a process of copying and inserting the same frames from the anime to each specified point among frames, to render 60 frames for each second, which can either result in smoother motion or artefacts and unnatural movements based on the interpolation application you use and the anime you want to process. Of course, people have varying views on 60 FPS anime. Some think frames interpolation only ruins the animator’s original intention and composition of an anime. Other people hold that there are many good 60fps interpolation examples that are superior for watching. Because of different viewing preferences, the debates on converted 60 FPS anime are still going on.
