    I need help in a task I am about to do, I am a beginner with video files and hope any one can help me.
    I have a number of bmp images saved as RGB data produced by OpenGL, C++ program. The RGB data are the colour values of every pixel of the 1024 x 768 pixels screen. The images are 96 fixed images and I need to display these images as a video stream over 4 seconds (24 images per second).
    So, how can I save the data of these images in a video file so that I can play these images over 4 seconds as a sequence? I wish to know a way to do that, knowing that I am really beginner, so I need to know what are the tools I need to use and what is the way to use them in order to perform the mentioned task.
    Thanking you very much in advance.

    You can use MPEG Streamclip to combine the images and export the video as a .mov or .avi file with many codec options.

    Also make sure that the images are named sequentially, so that if you select all the images in MPEG Streamclip, they are in the right order.

    Similar threads maybe?

    This is a feature of QuickTime Pro.

    Quicktime 7 can import images as a sequence.

    You can install it from the Snow Leopard installation disc.

    Not 100% sure, but I believe Graphic Converter might also be able to string together a movie frame by frame. I know you can use it to make make animated gifs that way.
