Default Creating Movies From Stills

Hello! I'm starting to work on a two people mini advanture game production, and would need some help....

I want to produce an AVI, doing so directly from Maya gets me no control over the codec, so I render to a sequence of frames. Can anyone recommand a *free* application to encode those frames to an AVI?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your help guys! I am using VirtualDub and XVid, and no, Fcheck didn't do it, I expected it to, but it didn't.... If you know how to make Fcheck do it, please let me know, too!

I've noticed Fcheck has a way to play animation, by opening the first targa (or jpeg or whatever image type you choose) and playing out the frames. Its a really quick way to get a lok at your animation, but it doesn't seem to be able to save it as an AVI or any other video file.

I think you can use Adobe after effect to produce your image squences into a single animation clip, and save it in a variety of movie format such as avi, mov & etc. Hope this helps
