ActionScript video production with still photos

Is it possible to automate the process of creating flash videos from still photos including panning effects? I'd like to write a script that reads folders of jpg's and creates a short video from each folder of pics. The videos would just consist of the pics with a few pans and zooms. The output I want is a series of swf files.

I can't think of any way to automate it off the top of my head, but you should check out Microsoft Photo Story. (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/digitalphotography/PhotoStory/default.mspx)

It does the panning and zooms on still photos. I've only used Photo Story a handful of times, so I have no idea how easy or hard it would be to automate, but it's worth a shot. Plus, Photo Story 3 is free, so there's no harm in trying.
