Working with video frame rates in AWS Elemental MediaConvert

The frame rate of a video asset represents how quickly video player devices play back the frames of a video, in frames per second (fps). For example, films have a frame rate of 24 fps, NTSC television broadcasts are 29.97/59.94 fps, and PAL television broadcasts are 50/25 fps. If you keep the MediaConvert default settings in your job, your output video will have the same frame rate as your input video.

Some videos have a frame rate that varies over the duration of the video. For example, some cameras automatically generate video that uses more frames for high-action sequences and fewer frames for sequences with less motion. MediaConvert supports variable frame rate (VFR) inputs, but creates only constant frame rate (CFR) outputs. For more information, see Using variable frame rate inputs.
