Looking to make a demo reel of a character animation as part of a resumè. Confused whether to animate in 25, 30 or 60 FPS.

Obviously the higher, the more fluid it will look.

I believe movies are 24fps, so I'd go at least that. Anything more will just be butter.

It could also make it feel weird to watch:

I watched the 24 fps version, so I wouldn't know. Does this vary from person to person? Do certain people not feel put off by the higher framerate? If so, does it actually enhance immersion? I have a feeling that gamers, PC gamers especially, would have an easier time watching these HFR movies.

We can only see 30 fps. Anything above is waste.
