You should have said that you were using Adobe After effects.

Hopefully you should have named your images as "file_name_0001.extension" going up to say "file_name_0500.extension" for 500 frames.

Then open After effects, make a new composition, then file import select the frist image then check image sequence and import.

Then drag and drop it into the comp window, the image sequence will then be imported as "footage"

If you want a quick, cheap and simple way to make an animation from stills check out VIDEOMACH .

There's a time limited demo available for free but it's only around $30.00(USD) to buy if you like it.

All you need to do is import your images then export as your desired format, piece of cake!

Hope this helps a bit,

Mat.

I just used Quicktime Pro 6 -- it provided excellent image quality and the .mov could be imported to After Effects. Unfortunately I no longer have it because I need to watch Quicktime 7 movies and you can't install Pro 6 and Free 7 on the same computer. Stupid Steve Jobs.

Also if you have an AlphaChannel in your images (Targas) and you save the movie as "millions of colors+" you get the alpha channel with it (that's what the plus sign means). Which means -- you can composit your layers perfectly being that Maya does the "keying out" automatically for you.

It'll also be helpful if you wish to save your movies as h.264 -- but being that I only used Pro 6 I don't know how to do that. (That's a 7+ feature)

I think you click File -> Import Image Sequence and click the first frame (assuming they're numbered -- else you need to add them all in order by hand), but its been a while.
