You can output to yuv4mpeg instead of avi and pipe that to the theora 
encoder_example; that doesn't waste any time or quality. See for example

You could also do this with gstreamer 0.8, but apparently multifilesrc 
still needs to be ported to 0.10. :/

I had no idea imagemagick was growing ogg support; very cool. Although 
unless they fix their architecture it still won't be very useful; the 
last time I used it for making mng animations it loaded all the images 
into ram at once, which only works for small clips.
