    You open a Video Sequence Editor (VSE) window and ADD>images. Then you RMB select a range of images and press Enter. You will see a strip which you can place on the timeline.

    To render these images, you need to press the Do Sequence button in the (F10) Scene Window > Anim panel. Then press the big ANIM button.

    You'll find more information here.

    In future, you are better off asking questions like this by starting a New Thread in the appropriate forum (after you're certain you've searched for an answer). More people will see your question that way.

    Welcome aboard.

    Ok, here are some character animation links, with a little extra thrown in

    I don't know how these will look in the post. I was cleaning out my bookmarks in firefox, and rearranging them, so I thought I would try and help by spamming this thread with my collection of links that have helped me over the past couple months with Blender. I modified the html a little so it was easier to read. I tried not to put too many of the BA or other forums threads here, this forum and the search feature is an amazing resource.

    There are plenty more I'm sure, but these are the ones I kept coming back to, or saved to read a little later, I tried to give a slight description for each if it seemed to need it.

    There are several books listed in the first post, but people in the market for a book might also want to consider Introducing Character Animation with Blender, which you can read more about here on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Introducing-Ch.../dp/0470102608

    It is also available from the Blender E-shop, where purchasing it will help support Blender development. See my signature for the link to that.

    Here are some more links. Some of them overlap with Bgstratt's amazing list.

    A word of warning: I don't control anything on these sites, so you may run into something offensive here and there.

    The most useful:
    http://www.carlosbaena.com/anim_material.html
    www.animationpodcast.com - This podcast is definitely something you should check out. They don't come often, but they're full of great information! A lot of it is Disney-history based, but it's all nice and useful.
    www.splinedoctors.com - Their blog and podcast are really good!
    http://sevencamels.blogspot.com/
    http://www.keithlango.com/wordpress/?page_id=226
    http://www.animationmeat.com/ - Look for their PDFs of the (Ward Kimball?) lectures and other stuff. This site's fantastic!
    http://www.shaunfreeman.com/animating_tips/
    http://www.siggraph.org/education/ma..._trad_anim.htm
    http://www.comet-cartoons.com/3dhelp.php - Look at his article Character Animation: Principles and Practice. This is important stuff!
    www.sewardstreet.com (If you can find their archived posts (I haven't been able to yet), there's lots of great information there.)
    http://www.donbluth.com/academy.html
    http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/ (This blog has excellent information, but there's quite a bit of "adult" content there.)
    http://www.3dark.com/archives/index.html
    http://drawingsfromamexican.blogspot.com/
    http://www.navone.org - Look through his blog to find some good tutorials.
    http://www.animationarchive.org (This site occasionally has some objectionable content, but there's also a lot of nice scans of old animation books (which can, I believe, be used under the "fair use" law...).
    http://tenminutedrawing.blogspot.com - I haven't really been able to look at this a lot yet, but from what I've seen, it looks like another good place to learn.
    http://www.frankanollie.com/AnimationTips.html

    The other stuff (history, the old masters' work, etc):
    www.animationmentor.com - An online animation school taught by professional animators.
    http://classiccartoons.blogspot.com
    http://disneybooks.blogspot.com
    http://characterdesign.blogspot.com
    http://www.animationarchive.net/
    http://animation.about.com/ - Not sure how much good information is here, but it might be worth a look.

    This is still very WIP, and mostly just for my own personal learning, but I'm gonna put it here in case it can help anyone else too. I'm working through "The Animator's Survival Kit" by Richard Williams, after having read it through, to give me a better understanding of the material, and the principles of animation. If you see anything that needs corrected, let me know, I'm always willing to learn and make things better. It took me a long time to find and read the book, after reading and watching anything I could find online, so it's nice to have it all in one place instead of all over the world. Here's the link, there are only a few lessons done so far.

    I'm surprised I didn't see any mention of The ManCandy FAQ. That's a great DVD and quite advanced.
    Pinch yourself. Nope, you're not dreaming. You have a full featured 3D suite at your fingertips. Now go create something!
