Python is, of course, up to the job.  However, nobody I know has
provided free access to something that "knows" how to generate the AVI
format.  The array formay part is probably best handled through numarray
(which is quite happy with multi-dimensional arrays).  PIL may also have
some interesting things to get you going.

So, the parts are mostly there.  If you want the whole kit and kaboodle
prepackaged for you, no luck.
