What are the correct final frames in 8 minutes for the video? I want precisely perfect timing. So I won't lose track of time.

    $\begingroup$ Why is this question considered "opinion-based"? Is it about the "right" setting for the frame rate? Or is it a question of how many frames you get for an 8-minute rendered video? Is the video rendered at all or is it about video footage that is used for VFX? The question is unclear and ambiguous. $\endgroup$

The number of frames for any time length depends on the frame rate. The frame rate is the number of frames per second (FPS). In Blender, the default frame rate is 24 FPS. You can change the frame rate on the Output Properties > Frame Rate setting.

You can do a bit of math and figure out the exact number of frames for any length of time by multiplying the frame rate by the number of seconds.

8 minutes = 480 seconds. 480 seconds times 24 frames per second = 11520 frames.

But if the frame rate is, for exemple, at 30 FPS, then it's gona be 480 x 30, which is 14400.

So before figuring out the total number of frames you have to know what frame rate your project is going to be set to.
