Encode a video file from thousands of images?

Encode a video file from thousands of images? Can't Post


What kind of Perl modules are available to stick together thousands of images into a movie file? I want to avoid the disk I/O associated with generating all the images, writing them to disk, and then using separate encoding software.

I've got some perl that's already capable of generating thousands (millions actually) of images (using ImageMagick).

Audio is of no concern.

Does anyone know of a module that just uses an open filehandle and can have images written to it? Almost like frameserving?

I've explored RTjpeg a little bit, but I don't know if it can do what I'd like it to.

not exactly a perl solution but look into mencoder, there is yuv4mpeg and more that can do what you are looking for, man page for it is here:
