Unfortunately, there is no tool to create or play animated SVG (Inkscape 
has this on the roadmap, but not in the near future), otherwise SVG 
would be ideal for the task.

Another alternative could be to create the introduction in something 
like OOo Impress, export as PDF and play it in the default PDF viewer 
(this way you can have animated transitions between frames).

And why not use just HTML/CSS/nice graphics/a bit of JavaScript? Or 
maybe for smoother graphics, static SVG with working hyperlinks, viewed 
in the default browser.
