Enter the number of frames and frames per second into the calculator to determine the time in milliseconds. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Frames To Ms Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from frames to milliseconds.

MS = (F * 1000) / FPS


  • MS is the time in milliseconds (ms)
  • F is the number of frames
  • FPS is the frames per second (fps)

To calculate the time in milliseconds, multiply the number of frames by 1000, then divide the result by the frames per second. This will give you the equivalent time in milliseconds. This conversion is useful for synchronizing video with audio or other time-based elements in video editing and animation.

What is a Frames To Ms?

Frames to Ms (milliseconds) is a conversion used in video editing and animation to translate the number of frames into a time format. This is important because video and animation are typically measured in frames per second (fps), but audio and other time-based elements are often measured in milliseconds. Therefore, converting frames to milliseconds can help synchronize video with audio or other time-based elements.

How to Calculate Frames To Ms?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Frames To Ms.

  1. First, determine the number of frames (F).
  2. Next, determine the frames per second (FPS).
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = MS = (F * 1000) / FPS.
  4. Finally, calculate the Frames To Ms.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

number of frames (F) = 120

frames per second (FPS) = 30
