Render the images with ${whatever}, run my script "mkmovie.sh" on the
resulting images. Find it here: http://olausson.de/scriptarchive/16-modeling).

Comment out the formats you don't like, tweak the video codec settings to fit
your needs.

The script needs "mencoder" which normally comes with "mplayer" on most Linux
distributions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEncoder
