Think of the Frame Rate (fps) as a speed limit. You need a very fast
computer or very well optimized animation to come close to the set frame
rate. First determine if your movie is as optimized as well as it should
be. If not optimize it using the Report and the Bandwidth Profiler. The
better optimized your movie the smoother and faster it will play.

The higher you set the frame rate the greater the difference between how
fast your animation will play on a fast computer compared to how fast it
will play on a slower computer. The lower you set the frame rate the
more time you give the fatter and slower frames to play therefore the
frame rate will be slower but smoother especially on slower computers.
Don't worry about the frame rate number but how well it plays on your
target computers at the set rate.
