depends really on the format. Film runs at 24 frames per second while video runs at 30 fps, for example.

So, for video, 1 frame would be 1/30th of a second. 5 seconds would be 150 frames.

Mike's right but I would just like to add that it's NTSC that runs at 30 frames per second, PAL and SECAM run at 25fps.

Thank you so much guys, I really really really appreciate your help. And luckily, my model isnt too high poly. Ha, not saying that it has any sort of correct layout, but eh, its all good. =) Again, thanks very much. You saved my government grade. =)
