I second Kit's support for the ease of installation and use of LaTeX
(although I use prosper for presentations rather than beamer).

Installation on any OS is simple as you can grab a live CD from
http://www.texlive.org/ (and MikTeX mentioned in the thread is a bit
dated now anyway).  Installation under *NIX systems will depend on the
type your on, but most GNU/Linux distros have TexLive in their package
repositories.

Its a shame a significant proportion of the world still focus on style
over content as its far easier when the two are handled separately.

On the original problem one solution could be to generate a series of
.jpg's or .png's and the compile them into an animated GIF for embedding
in whatever presentation software you are using.  How you do this will
depend on your OS, but you can (according to a few Google searches) use
The GIMP (http://www.thegimp.org/) which is available cross-platforms to
do this, and I've used command-line tools under GNU/Linux to achieve this.
