This is a typical command line to create a movie from a series of snapshots in PNG format:
-r 15 is the input frame rate. Experiment with values smaller than the output frame rate for longer movies.
-r 25 is the output frame rate (use this value for standard 25 frames per second)
-i frames.%03d.png reads the input frames in sequence
