What software should I use to turn pictures into movie clips? I have a GoPro camera set to take pictures at a set interval and would like recommendations on free/cheap software to use to make them into a time lapse video using a Windows netbook.

I'm a novice at this and am having a hard time differentiating between the programs I'm seeing online, so if you've done something like this, I'd appreciate your recommendations. Thanks!

Have you checked if GoPro's software (available on their website) does this?

Use ImageMagick, then it is as simple as:

convert -delay 100 *.png my_movie.mpeg

Where the delay value is ticks, with 100 ticks per second. In the example above, each PNG frame is shown once per second.

Windows movie maker can do this as well.

I often use VirtualDub for creating timelapses from still images.

quicktime pro also does it, but it's not free

Another (free) piece of software that can do this is MPEG Streamclip.
