I have done things like this by simply concatenating the images into an
mpeg, and specifying the frame rate. You can do it under Linux with
mencoder or ffmpeg. Example:
mencoder mf://*.jpg -mf fps=10:type=jpg -o mymovie.mpg -ovc lavc -lavcopts
or with ffmpeg:
ffmpeg -i %05d.jpg -sameq mymovie.mpg
When you play it back you can control the speed with an argument to mplayer:
mplayer -fps 10 mymovie.mpg
