Well I've managed to get good results using TMPGenc (http://www.tmpgenc.net/) to
compress straight from the individual frames. The only awkward thing is that you
need to play with the settings to get good results. I find setting it to "2-pass
(vbr)" gets good results, then you can set the target bitrate to balance the
quality against the file size.

My plan is to render the whole animation, then just keep adjusting the
compression quality until I get close to the IRTC size limit!

Hope that helps.
