What is Frame Accuracy?
MTS recordings from AVCHD camcorder are often highly compressed before stored, such a compressed movie contains key frames and non-key frames. Key frames can be displayed independently, while non-key frames can not be displayed without key frames. So such a functionality to locate and display every frame correctly, no matter key frame or non-key frame, is called frame accuracy (frame by frame). (Tip: Frame is one of the many single photographic images in a video.)
The Advantages of Frame Accuracy:
With Frame Accuracy, you can precisely start locating and displaying on desired frame; easily get exactly what you see or want. Without Frame Accuracy, you may lose the desire frame, or you may get SECONDS of frames you do not want before desired one.
