Yes, but ImageMagick might not be the best tool for that if you are simply combining a lot of frames into one movie/video. We rely on delegates for some formats such as MP3 and MP4, so type "convert -list format" to see which formats are supported by your installation.

ffmpeg is almost certainly a better idea.

What IM is good at is generating change scene fades, wipes, adding text, and other fluff.
However typically Im is called from and controlled by more advanced video editing software to generate these effects.
