Mathematica generating gifs for avi problem

i'm trying to generate an avi movie for powerpoint. since Mathematica for
windows doesn't support this directly, i'm exporting individual .gifs
with Mathematica's Export[], then using shareware to convert to avi. 

problem is, i have 1000's of frames and it's taking a long time to
render each one. shouldn't it be possible to direct Mathematica not to render
and rather to save these plots? i'm using Export[,"GIF"] and i tried
DisplayFunction->Identity but doesn't work. any runarounds?
