Will LTT start producing 60 FPS videos?

They're not necessarily needed but always nice to have 馃槉

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X,聽32 GB DDR4-3600,聽NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080. More.

but they add extra costs in term of processing, storage, etc etc

so i don't think they should do it unless there's a good reason to

unless if there's no extra cost to it, then sure, why not

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney聽|聽Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)


none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general


Products聽I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD,聽Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I聽hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past聽the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies聽I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built聽like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had聽good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's聽relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Almost no reason for MOST of their videos. Maybe for game reviews or things that require motion cap but... for talking head videos, it's mostly pointless.聽

Some video's, more so the VLOG style video's with camera panning would really, really benefit from it.聽

You do realize that higher framerates are not free, right? Not only do they cost more on the production end by requiring more storage and computer resources, but they raise the requirements on the hardware viewing end. People who watch LTT on older phones, older laptops, older tablets or older media streaming devices (like Blu-Ray players) can have stuttering issues with 1080p60 videos that don't occur at 1080p30. Some devices don't even allow you to watch YouTube at 1080p and above when it's 60fps. Case and point: because I watch in-browser and the display's refresh rate is limited, my phone will not allow me to watch 1080p video for YouTubers who do upload at 60fps. I'm limited to 720p for those videos. LTT and J2C are about the only tech channels left where I can actually watch in 1080p or higher on my phone. So I actually would be hurt by such a decision.

Can someone here please explain to me what the benefit is of 60fps LTT videos? Let's just take today's video: Shooting a 500 Megapixel Photo!

Where would this benefit from the higher framerate? Can someone point to a scene where 60fps would make a meaningful difference here?

Sounds right. I remember hearing the same, but can't place the context of a particular video or anything. Regardless, it's true.

For content that's mostly a static camera staring at a host... you probably won't notice the difference. There's not a lot of camera movement in any of LMG's content so it's just a waste.聽

60FPS is more demanding in every stage of the production pipeline, and 24FPS typically looks more lifelike (at wide shutter angles). Some people get uncomfortable after watching a 60FPS video for so long since the shutter's speed has to be smaller and the motion blur won't look realistic. It's called the "soap opera effect". Anytime you notice something being 24FPS, it's shot聽poorly.

GN is doing their stuff in 60fps and it looks really really nice, but they're also much much lower volume.

Some videos would be nice to have in 60FPS, but not all of them need it. It takes more computational resources to record, edit, store, and play, and for most things it's just not necessary. LMG already puts out a large number of videos per week with all of their various channels, so you can just imagine the file size increase that would be associated with that.聽
