Description benp1990 2007-05-27 22:21:23 UTC
I have text set to magnify in and when I run the slideshow, the text freezes 
and runs really slow. I cant use the program because no matter what animation I 
put in, it freezes and runs slow. It's not my computer cause I'm running a Dual 
Core 2.8 Gz with a gig of ram. Everything else on it runs fast. PowerPoint, 
with everthing set up the same, does not have this problem.

@benp1990: Could you please attach a sample documnt? Which graphical card do you
use? Is it an ATI card?

@thb: It looks like it is the ATI issue.
Comment 2 benp1990 2007-05-28 20:37:46 UTC
The card is an "Intel 82945G Express". Upon further testing it seems to be 
working now, however still a little unsmooth. I also tried it on an "ATI RAGE 
Mobility-P" (with WinXP). It runs pretty choppy on that. I also tried it on a 
Linux PC with an "S3 Savage" video card. The animations ran OK but I had some 
problems with the text color.

Strange... it runs perfectly in my machine (Win XP, OO 2.2, Intel Mobile 945GM
Chipset Express graphics).
Comment 5 thb 2007-05-29 10:05:42 UTC
well, stock OOo renders almost everything in software. so, having larger amounts
of shapes to transform tends to be slow. we plan to opensource a DirectX-based
implementation for the slideshow in one of the next versions.

Set to new and change the target
Comment 7 christian.guenther 2007-05-31 16:46:36 UTC
Rendering with the directX canvas works much better but in my mind also not good
If possible we should increase the rendering speed.
Please have a look.
