This is the speed at which new source material's sampled from the original files in your computer and which new animation positions are calculated. It's also the rate used by effects that may randomize on every new frame of your composition. I started out with frame rate of 10 frames a second on this comp, which gave me a little bit of a stop motion sort of look. But let's say I wanted to push that even further.

Press Command+K or Ctrl+K and set this down to 3 frames a second. 0 to RAM preview and now I have a much slower stop motion look to this animation.
