Developer's Description

FPS Calculate is a utility created for animators and 3D artists. It allows you to quickly convert time into a frame count as well as block out animation by using the digital stopwatch utility called the Animation Timer.

FPS Calculate allows you to select from a set of common frame rates such as 24 fps, 30 fps and 25 fps. You also have the ability to enter a custom frame rate and time can be entered in minutes, seconds or both. From there, you can simply convert time into a frame count, or use the Animation Timer to time action and movement and FPS Calculate will display the frame count in realtime based off the user-defined frame rate!



-Frame to Time conversion tool. Using FPS Calculate’s frame conversion tool, you can quickly get the frame count for a user-defined time interval and have it converted to a frame count based off the selected framerate.

-Time to Frame conversion tool. Using FPS Calculate’s time conversion tool, you can quickly get the time for a given frame count according to the framerate selected.
*New Feature added in 2.0.1

-Animation Timer tool for timing action and movement. The Animation Timer was built for ease of use as the stop and start of the timer is done with a single touch down and up of a single button and the frame conversion is displayed automatically in realtime.

FPS Calculate is built and maintained by a 3D Artist for 3D Artists.

"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"
Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
Directors Notes
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
