Question Making a video from frames

Hi, I would like to make video from frames (I do special effets which sometimes requires frame by frame editing). Which software would do the job? Being able to specify the framerate would be useful.

mencoder is a powerful tool for encoding video and sound.
Use the mf:// URL to specify encoding from frames and the option "-mf fps=12" to set the framerate. There are many output formats available, read the man-page/documentation for the extensive possibilities, the manpage also includes some examples at the end.
mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=12 -o output.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mjpeg
