How To Change Fps In Adobe After Effects

If you ever need to adjust the frames per second (FPS) in Adobe After Effects, this is the guide for you. Altering the FPS is a common task in video editing, and although it may seem daunting, it is actually quite simple. Follow our step-by-step instructions in this blog post to learn how.

What is FPS?

FPS, or Frames Per Second, is the number of frames in a video that are displayed per second. The higher the frames, the smoother the video playback appears to the human eye. Typical FPS settings are 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, and 60 frames per second.

Steps to Change FPS in Adobe After Effects

To change the FPS in Adobe After Effects, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open Your Composition Settings

First, open your composition. This can be done by either double-clicking the composition in the Project panel, or by selecting it and going to Composition > Composition Settings.

Step 2: Change the Frame Rate

Now, in the Composition Settings dialog box, you’ll see the frame rate. It’s typically set to 30 FPS by default. Click on the frame rate box, and input the new frame rate you want.

  1. Go to the "Composition Settings" dialog box.
  2. Locate the "Frame Rate" box.
  3. Click on it and input your desired frame rate.
  4. Click "OK".

Note: Be sure to click “OK” after you’ve input your new frame rate. If you don’t, your changes won’t be saved!

Step 3: Confirm Your Changes

Once you’ve made these changes, your new FPS will be reflected in your composition. You can confirm this by looking at the frame rate indicator in the bottom of your composition panel.


And there you have it – changing the FPS in Adobe After Effects isn’t as complicated as it first seems. By changing your frame rate, you can achieve smoother video playback and tailor your projects to meet specific requirements. Happy editing!
