I'm looking for a utility that can combine a directory full of hundeds or thousands of images into a movie. I want it to be as automatic a possible - I don't want to have to import the files into a video editing program, etc.

I'd like a free program if possible, and open source is a plus.

What do you recommend?

Slideshow Maker will do what you are looking to do. It will take your JPGs and turn them into a MPG movie.
