How do I make AVI files?

I'm looking for a simple, preferably free (but not a requirement) program to make SIMPLE AVI files.  Rotate letter, move a bitmap, etc.  I do have PhotoShop, if it is of any help.  What would you recommend?

The latest version of Gif Construction Set (32 bit) will create animated GIFs and convert them to AVI's (and vice versa).  It also has some tools to create interesting text images, rotating images, fading and transitions, and LED sign type effects.  It may be that it can do all you want - if not you could use another image editor (like PhotoShop) to create image frames and combine them to make an AVI using this Gif Construction Set.  Its shareware by the way, and relatively small so downloading it doesn't take forever.

You should be able to get hold of it at http://www.mindworkshop.com.

I appreciate your comment.  The program that you showed me basically takes a series of GIF files to make an AVI.  What I need is something that will take a letter and rotate it. It needs to be able to do word manipulation. (Such as have a word fly around the screen).

The OUTPUT of which needs to need in AVI format.  Do you have any other ideas?

Thanks

You can make a letter rotate by manipulating the gifs, fairly straightforward if you know how.  Also 'having words fly around the screen' implies that you will end up with a fairly big picture size for your AVI.  Big screen size = Huge Filesize

Try the software 'Flying Fonts' which basically is a software tool which manipulates text, makes it look like 3-D, rotate, 'fly into' screen in various different ways. Just like the kind of introduction text you see in movies. However, I don't think it comes free.
