you can bring up FPS in a viewport, so I'd assume it would be included in a playblast. Cant remember off the top of my head how to do it and I dont have maya on this machine here.. I'll have a look when i get home

yeah, I suppose you could go into your playblast options and choose to playback with Fcheck... that might get you what you want.

There are a few frame counter scripts on Highend3D for just this purpose!
