I have a folder frames of alphabetically ordered .png files. I'm trying to animate them somehow from the command line. Is there a quick command to make a movie from these files? I'd appreciate any help.

Assuming you have Image Magick installed:

convert -delay 20 -loop 0 frames/*.png animation.gif
