Not really, and thus you probably aren't better off with mencoder,
especially since mencoder might break any time and not be fixed
for a long time (as happened recently with audio encoding for example).
So it is a good question _why_ you are not using mplayer
or FFmpeg. Both should be able to handle this kind of thing just fine.
However these options should kind of work with mencoder if
you make sure to update first:
-ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=png:format=rgb24 -of lavf -lavfopts format=image2
