You can compress it using a codec, but your going to have to have another piece of software such as premier or after effects etc.

You can just import the AVI file you made then export it as a MPEG of what ever you want, you dont need to have the image sequence.

If you wanted to have the image sequence have a look at the thread titled "how to Render a Movie" above.
