I'm trying to take my .png files and assemble them into a video file playable on
a (I know...) MS Surface RT.
Ideally, I'd like something that natively creates an mp4 or some other supported
file format.

I made an uncompressed AVI with MakeAVI, but a lot of the players and converters
don't read it correctly, and display a black & whitish looking image that's
slanted to the right. (PavTube, BrorSoft, IdealShare VideoGo, Wondershare)

Gifanimator won't read in PNG, and I don't think animated PNG is supported.

FormatFactory made a gif, but the right side of the video is darkened for some
reason.

Does anyone have any robust, modern software for creating animations?

for mp4, I'm used to:

ffmpeg -b 1000k -r 30 -f image2 -i FrameFolder/FrameName%04d.png -vcodec
libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p -preset veryslow -profile baseline -tune
animation -crf 1 AnimName.mp4

Beware of the resolution, multiple of 8 or 16 on both dimensions is
usually recommended.

It's robust, but not new, so is it modern ?
