Best way to convert graphics to slide show? (Mac OS 9)

I want to convert long sequences of Mathematica graphics cells 
(conventional plots, with some Text on them) to a steppable slide show 
or movie after they're created.

I've done this using the "Edit>Save Selection as QuickTime" menu command 
to get a QuickTime movie, then playing the movie back with the QuickTime 
movie player, and it works OK.

But what's the *best/simplest/easiest/most effective* way to do a lot of 
these?  (best way to export initially, preferably under Notebook 
control, best export format, best way to play back)  (on a Mac, OS 9.1, 
Mathematica 4.0.1)


*  Full screen or near full screen playback

*  "Pretty good" image quality -- minimal jaggies

*  Single-frame step forward and back using arrow keys

Thanks for any assistance.
