ffmpeg is the command line utility I chose - does enough, but not too much (like mplayer, for instance).
YouTube and Google ideal input video
- 640x480 @ 30 fps MPEG4
Grab the ffmpeg package from ATrpms.
For speed of capture :
Grabbing the screen (the data rate of 1Mb/sec set with ‘-b’ option)

Making a Title Sequence
Join the Scenes together…
Test the movie (and/or upload to youtube) :
Alternative - build the movie out of frames…

Join the grabbed frames together into a movie :
and then proceed with the cobbling together as before.
