I'd like to see zooming presentation functionality in Impress.
There are 2 concepts I've seen so far:
- Prezi Desktop, which is a standalone Air application, where you are not limited with slides and
- PptPlex, which is an add-on for Microsoft Office, where you use traditional slides with a canvas, probably more appropriate here.
Is this idea also part of bug 38169? That bug also talks about zooming, besides other improvements when giving a presentation.
No, that's not the same.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

I very much agree to taking Impress in this direction. Being able to provide custom animation which would tie an entire presentation together is very aesthetic, and Prezi currently dires a great job with this.
If there is ability to create "zoom areas" within slides, I think this could solve the basic function. But ultimately a higher-level control to give navigation to the whole presentation would be the way to go.
Is there possibility of utilizing some opensource libraries (OpenShot, MLT, etc.) which could provide code to be brought in for this purpose?
A zooming presentation features was recently added to MS Powerpoint : https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Use-Zoom-for-PowerPoint-to-bring-your-presentation-to-life-9d6c58cd-2125-4d29-86b1-0097c7dc47d7?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
There are a number of OSS zooming presentation software, which might be helpful for the implementation of this feature in LibreOffice:
