The general procedure is to render each frame individually into whatever
format you want, then use a video encoder like ffmpeg to stitch the
individual images into an animation. ffmpeg is really liberal with the
file types it can handle. I've personally used .jpg, .png, .ppm, and
.tga files as inputs for ffmpeg, but I assume other formats would work
as well.
