Ummm . . .No! AC line


Ummm . . .No! AC line frequency had nothing to do with film frames per second. Things got weird when the industry shot on film and posted on video for a few years. That’s when line frequency and video sync frequency and film frames per second vs video frames per second got all tangled up. Not too long ago, camcorders that advertised 24P were not pure 24P like film. They shot in 30 fps ( well, actually 29.97 fps ) and then threw away frames to result in 24P . . . although not really 24 fps, just a tad less because video sync is 59.94 cps., not 60Hz. Got it?
