I am looking for an application to create video presentations in linux. I have made one with the online service that i really like, but i am looking to make one with a little more control over it. For example i would like to control how the pictures are shown ( the duration ).

Is there any good app on linux for this

I'm not quite sure what you're looking for. Here are a few suggestions for editing video on Linux (please look for them on Google, I'm not allowed to post more than one link):

  • GIMP Animation Package
  • Cinelerra
  • Kino
  • Jahshaka
  • LiVES

For a longer list, see here - the website's in German, but full of links ...

Have you looked into OOImpress

IMPRESS is a truly outstanding tool for creating effective multimedia presentations. Your presentations will stand out with 2D and 3D clip art, special effects, animation, and high-impact drawing tools.
