I'm searching for a way to to create a video sequence with something like a scripting language.

The goal is to automate the process of generating a script which describes something like:

place video x at 0,0
place picture y at 4,4
move y to 0,0 in 4sec
...

In the next step I would like to render the video with such a script. Is the any system for such a task?

Sounds like you're looking for Flash. – kotekzot Apr 10 '12 at 15:14

I think you're looking for something like SMIL, though the last time I looked at that it was widely unsupported and buggy.

You might find GStreamer in combination with a simple, but general purpose like programming language like e.g. Python suitable for your needs.
