Create Movie From Series Of JPEGS With Mplayer

If you have a folder of jpegs in sequential order (like a series of animation renderings from Maya, for example) and you want to turn them into a movie, grab mplayer from here.

Then make a batch file and call it what you want (I call mine makemovie.bat) and put in the following line:

mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=90 -o output.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=wmv2

Make sure that mencoder.exe is in your path, or provide the full path to mencoder in the batch file.

Put that in the directory with all your jpegs and run it. When it completes you’ll have a movie file called output.avi. How simple is that?
