I need to photograph and animate a cell phone into a 360º web spin for a client. I would need to capture 40 images sequenced and "stitch" them together for a final Flash animation for their website. What software/hardware would you recommend?

The answer by DaveParillo will only get you a 'slideshow' of your images, which happen to be taken in a 360 degree circle. With fades in between that may be good enough for you, but it is not 'stitched'. Google for 'make panoramic movie', this will e.g. lead you to – Jan Doggen Sep 5 '13 at 9:47

Install Imagemagick. Open a cmd window and cd to where your images are:

convert frame*.jpeg mymovie.flv

will convert all the images into a single movie file. You may need to install 'delegates' depending on what you wan to convert into. If you need to insert a delay between frames:

convert -delay 30 frame*.jpeg mymovie.flv

The delay units are ticks / ticks per second - you specify the ticks. The default ticks per sec = 100.

This page goes into far greater detail, using a combination of ffmpeg, mplayer, and imagemagick.
