I second ffmpeg!

For a list of frames of the form image0001.png, for example:

ffmpeg -i image%04d.png -c:v libx264 -preset medium -crf 20 output.mp4

should produce a decent H.264 video. There are a huge range of options,
including fps and adding audio, but I'm not an expert. Best to see the
documentation at https://ffmpeg.org/documentation.html, or google for guides
that suit your needs!
