Compiling images into a movie

Want to compile your "supreme quality" snapshots into a single, handy and portable movie file? With 'mencoder' and 'ffmpeg', this is as simple as calling this command:

mencoder mf://*.jpg -mf w=800:h=600:fps=10:type=jpg -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=divx:mbd=2:trell -oac copy -o outputDivx.avi

You can easily change the parameters in bold. For example, if you want to encode a video using several PNG files at 640x480 resolution, and xvid compression, with a framerate of 30 fps, the command should look like this:

mencoder mf://*.png -mf w=640:h=480:fps=30:type=png -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=xvid:mbd=2:trell -oac copy -o outputXvid.avi
