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.

"Apps for Pro Filmmakers" is a curated database of professional filmmaking apps that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of 400 (and counting) mobile, tablet, watch, and now desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals.
"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."FILMCAST
"[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
