From Ubuntu bug report:

I have a PowerPoint presentation that includes lots of gradients into
transparency. Having imported it into Impress on numerous
occasions, specifically to see if could handle it, all the
gradients are rendered as gradients into white rather than transparency.

I have since discovered that Impress does, in fact, have the facility to create
gradients into transparency, but they are considered different from any other
gradient for some reason beyond my understanding.

The bug, therefore, is that gradients to transparency in PowerPoint
presentations are not correctly imported to use OpenOffice's way of having
gradients into transparency. I am not sure if the reverse is true (gradients
into transparency in OpenOffice are not exported as such in PowerPoint
