I have generated 90 .bmp files and now would like to generate a 3 second video with 30 frames per second from this. Preferrably in the .mov format, but any common format would be ok. Is there any (free) program available that can do this?

ffmpeg can create a .mov for you.

See this section of the ffmpeg FAQ.

You may like to try something such as:

ffmpeg -f image2 -r 30 -i img%d.bmp ./

I just deleted my answer after re-reading the question. This answer rocks! You'll just need to make sure you have the correct codecs. – DaveParillo Dec 6 '09 at 4:05
