I have a bunch of rasters taken about 10 minutes apart, and I have a nice QGIS project that produces pretty enough maps of them. I'm wondering if there's a way to animate this raster series, with a color map and overlaid with (static) vector data, using open-source GIS. A QGIS solution would be ideal since I already have the project set up there, but other suggestions are welcome as well.

Try Time Manager for QGIS. This introduction seems to indicate it will do what you want.

Time Manager doesn't support raster yet. –  underdark Feb 14 '12 at 9:19
    
Oops - I missed that, I usually only have vectors. –  iant Feb 14 '12 at 9:20

There is a raster branch, but I haven't tested it yet: github.com/gvb/TimeManager/tree/raster –  underdark Feb 14 '12 at 9:27
    
@underdark, the TM link was broken. I changed it to underdark.wordpress.com/tag/time-manager, but dunno if that's the right place. –  matt wilkie Jul 16 '12 at 19:54
