How much time do you have in your hands?

I was exploring some applications to do "slide shows" and found several. None of 
them intuitive or good looking.

I've used kino to assemble it all, mostly because my needs haven't been too 
demanding. It is intuitive and easy to learn, albeit limited. Having said that, 
it offers all the functionality you listed: stills, titling, pan and zoom.

Ensure you save your work frequently because every now and then it crashes.

Hi All,

I have to compile a video and some stills into a movie. I want to do titling and 
I want to take some of the pictures and do a slow zoom or pan on them. Being 
Linux I'm aware this may mean using more than one tool, one to create a zoom and 
pan video of the stills and another to create title screens (gimp I presume) and 
another to tie it all together.

Any suggestions?
