B for sure. triple the frames and a tripling of the frames sound awkward and incorrect. As for D 'there were' is not parallel with 'are now able to produce ...'

IMO=B

three times is properly used for something that is countable.

Agree that B is the only option with correct idiom and is the best.

Using computer animation programs, animators are now able to produce three times as many frames per hour as they did in the 1960’s.

I have a question. In this case when we say 'they did', doesn't it imply that the same animators were alive in 1960's and producing ...?

Am I missing something in here?

I think they talk about animators in general without "the" article

Also if i feel the use of "could" is correct in the sentence below

I think the comparison is wrong in the above sentence : number is not getting reflected in second part of the comparison.

Also, I meant "could produce" not "could have produced" (I think past perfect is not required here)
