Samples per frame = (sample rate)/FPS

Samples of what?! What is sample rate of sound? How many frames per second?

It depends on the sample rate and the frame rate:

at 24fps and 48000Hz every frame is long (48000hz/24fps)= 2000 sample

at 25 fps and 48000Hz: (48000hz/25fps)= 1920 sample

hope it helps.

best

Sample rate divided by frame rate. You can also select one frame in PT, set the counter to samples and look in the length box.

If I am not mistaken, that depends on whether the audio is locked or unlocked as well as the timecode frame rate & audio sampling rate I reckon. can you be more specific?

Guess it depends on the frame rate and sample rate? If sample rate is 48k and frame rate is 24fps that works out at 2000 a frame (i think!!) lol It's late and I'm quite tired so forgive me if I'm off ;) Hope that helps
