    Hi,

    My company has a piece of animation software which outputs a sequential
    series of PNG files, where you can specify the frames per second.

    At present the PNG files are imported as a .lst file into a program called
    Blink, and converted to a Microsoft Video 1 type AVI under the belief that
    this is the most compatible way of getting the clip out to corporate clients
    to use, without special codecs etc being needed.

    As the 5 second clip can be over 10 mb and is fairly poor quality, and is
    emailed. I thought encoding to MPEG 1 or MPEG 2 would be more efficient for
    emailing and retain quality more.

    Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced MPEG encoder which will accept a
    series of sequentially named PNG images, and output a 620 width by 420 high
    media file??

    Many Thanks.

    TD.

    Sounds like a job for AviSynth + TMPGEnc MPEG Encoder / Xpress.

    See the "Loading image sequences" example on this page:
