    Hi! I've got a series of png images that i need to convert to a video
    file. Desired output will in the end be mp4/quicktime, though as long
    as i can convert it to something that i can eventually convert to
    mp4/qt.

    This is harder than i thought. I eventually managed to convert the
    frames to a FLI, but FLI->mp4 seems sketchy as best ( the video came
    out yellow ).

    I'm on an OS X mac now, but have lots of linux boxes sitting around as
    well. ;)

    Any suggestions? Simple ways to solve the problem?

    You can do this with QuickTime Pro (i.e. have paid the upgrade price
    from the free downloadable version) on Mac OS X.
    The help for QuickTime contains the following instructions:
    Then you can Export this file as an MPEG-4 movie. Again from the Help:
    In fact, you can write Applescripts to automate this conversion,
    although if you are just doing a couple of movies, it isn't worth
    spending the time learning how to script this.

    If you are experiencing a yellow cast, check to see if you are using a
    particular color space or color profile in your PNG that is causing this
    cast.

    Cheers,
