If you happen to belong to the group of people preferring to learn and
experiment instead of looking for ready-made solutions, simply enter
"ffmpeg convert bmp image sequence to video lossless" into your preferred
search engine. :)
You will find various alternatives, one of which will certainly match your
use case.
