    I'd like to make a simple animation for an intro to some short
    lab-technique videos I'm doing. I don't want to do anything special--
    vague blue shapes in a blue background, something
    generically-science-y-- but I'd like to know what animation software can
    export a decent AVI for use with Adobe Premiere Pro.

    Any recommendations?

    Yes -- Adobe Premiere Pro. Its motion, keying, and key-framable matte tools
    are more than sufficient to do the two dimensional animation that you've
    described. This was composited completely within in Premiere Pro:

    as was the opening sequencer for this (except for the 3D letters, which were
    down in Ulead Cool 3D Edit):

    Ooh. Good stuff. I'd thought about trying the Titler to move elements
    around, and maybe that's the way to go. Thanks!

    Titler is not a good choice. It's not key-frameable, so you won't be
    able to animate it.

    Use the motion controls on the effects tab in combination with one of
    the keyers (chroma, color or green screen). Key frame the motion to
    get animation. The keyers will let you layer video on top of each
    other (compositing).
