Default Image Compiling

Havent used Maya in awhile, and I just got back into it. I batch rendered out a 200 frame animation, frame by frame. Now I need to put it together as a movie file. Are there any good programs out there that do this? I did a quick search, and came up with nothing.

You could use something like After Effects to do it, but for a quick and relatively easy way, Virtualdub is good. And it's free, whichis even better!

You can find it here....

As dango mentioned vDub is the best way to go if you don't have a compositing or editing package.

I have After Effects, but everytime I try compiling, I have to space them out by hand, and they arent 100% even between frames. Is there a special and easy way to do it with AE? I just want something quick and easy. I'll give VitrualDub a shot. Thanks!

did you name your images correctly?
myImage0001.tga
myImage0002.tga
myImage0003.tga
etc

when you import it to AE you import the image sequence (it's a check box on the import options i think... it does it automatically for me)

or as hammer said, get quicktime pro, open image sequence and save it out
it's probably the quickest solution, about 7 mouse clicks minimum

Yea, all the images are "imagename.#.tga". Hmm...I didnt see the checkbox for image sequence. Tonight when I get home I'll try it agian. Ive done it before years ago, but Ive forgotten alot when I was absent from Maya.

Thanks again!

Got it figured out in After Effects. All I had to do was check in the image sequence button, and boom. All done. Thanks guys.
