You should try GAP's filters. Make sure your sequence has a naming
scheme like foo_0001.png, foo_0002.png, etc and then use Frames to
Image to put all the files as layers of a new one.

In worst case, you will have to use a shell script to rename your
files to something GAP likes.

GAP has a navigator and lets you apply a filter multiple times. Maybe
you do not have to load all the image into a XCF. Really, you should
give GAP a try, it sounds like want you want. That, and read mencoder
and ImageMagick's docs more, for small editing and compression you
should have enough.
