The built in animation support in Octane Render now allows for image sequences to be generated in Turntable and Sun / Sky animations. But once you get the image sequences, it is desirable to turn them into an animation.

If you use a Mac (or have Quicktime Professional) you can edit an image sequence into a video. While this tutorial is meant for Maya, it works with any image sequence:

On Windows, you can use the free tool VirtualDub to perform the task (as described here

Another option for those on older versions of OS X who don't want to pay for Quicktime Pro is Graphic Converter.
