What I want to do or know

Is there an easy way to make a timelapse video out of a series of images, like from a #trail-camera?

Background story

Chris made a great video from photos from a #trail-cam in his post on our #leaffest timelapse tests:

And was asking others to upload some of their timelapses in this thread:

I wanted to know what the easiest/cheapest way to do this is, so others can share their images the same way.

I did find a bunch of YouTube videos of how to use different programs, but haven't done so myself:

And @cfastie provided some guidance for using Adobe Premier: https://publiclab.org/notes/glennwalquist/12-04-2016/monitoring-sargent-sand-mining-operation-in-ludington-michigan#c15908 -- thanks!

On mac, the easiest way is to use Quicktime 7, File --> Open Image Sequence

Just for the record, It can be easily done using GNU/linux. Here two tutorials for Kdenlive (just GNU/linux) and OpenShot (the only multiplatform, FLOSS video editor so windows/mac too)

Kdenlive ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVqrxNV5Y_s
OpenShot ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7BXKYlrf-g

Found an online JavaScript based version -- a little rough but maybe it means we can expand this out and do it without installing anything: http://techslides.com/demos/image-video/create.html
