Description andreschnabel 2008-09-06 17:18:52 UTC
If Hardware Acceleration is enabled on Windows, some slide transitions do not work.

E.g.Wipe Left / Right will not be shown in preview. In Presentation mode, the
wrong slide will be animated.
Comment 1 wolframgarten 2008-09-08 08:28:56 UTC
Sorry, no problem with that. Where did you download you version?
Comment 2 andreschnabel 2008-09-08 18:33:07 UTC
it's RC1 german localization from

maybe it is a problem with certain combinations of graphic card, driver and
Direct X version. I'll try to provide more details whar combinations do not work
witihin the next days.
Comment 3 max.odendahl 2008-09-08 18:48:28 UTC
I can confirm this behaviour on my laptop with Intel Centrino, ATI Radeon X2500,
DirectX  9.0c
Comment 4 andreschnabel 2008-09-09 17:29:33 UTC
my system is Windows XP, ATI RadeonHD 2600 XT, DirectX 9c

I'll attach a test file. Slide transitions are defined as wipe from left at
first lside, wipe from bottom at second slide. 

None of the transisions ish shown in preview mode. In presentation mode, no
transition is shown for the first slide. for the second slide, the first slide's
transition is shown.

Comment 6 wolframgarten 2008-09-10 12:14:40 UTC
When opening your file both slides have the same transition effect: "Wipe right"
. The effect is shown in preview and in slideshow. Sorry, problem is not
reproducible here.
Comment 7 andreschnabel 2008-09-10 13:17:51 UTC
so we have two differnt installations where the problem is reproducable and one
where it is not.

I'd say this qualifies for the assumtion that the problem exists.

wg: can you give some information about your graphics hardware / software?
Comment 8 wolframgarten 2008-09-10 13:28:18 UTC
I have tested this on two different WinXP machines, native and remote display.
Graphic card is Nvidia Quadro FX560 and VMware SVGA II. There were problems with
ATI cards in former times and this problem was on ATIs side as I can remember
Does it work for you when Hardware Acceleration is switched off?
Comment 9 andreschnabel 2008-09-10 13:54:28 UTC
tested on anopther machine: WinXP, Intel910GL Express, DirectX 9c

Transitions in Presentation mode are ok, but I get no preview in Edit mode.

If hardware acceleration is enabled, all works well (not smooth but it works).

Regarding i48454:
This issue "vanished" somwhere between OOo 2.2 and 2.3 nobody knows why. We had
no hw accell. at this time. Tests revealed, that using hw accell. Would have
fixed (circumvented) the problem as well. 
So by permanently disabling hw accell we might even risc to re introduce i48454.
Comment 10 wolframgarten 2008-09-10 14:27:16 UTC
"If hardware acceleration is enabled,  all works well ..." What now? Did you
mean disabled? My DirectX version is also 9.0 c.
I just went through all transitions in edit view: everything ok. Sure you have
the checkbox for preview enabled ? (sorry, have to ask that).
Comment 11 andreschnabel 2008-09-10 15:03:04 UTC
"If hardware acceleration is enabled,  all works well ..." must read
"If hardware acceleration is *disabled*,  all works well ..." indeed. Sorry.

Preview is enabled - and works for all effects but "wipe". For wipe transitions
i get a black preview are for the time of the preview. 
Comment 12 Regina Henschel 2008-09-10 15:26:38 UTC
When I have enabled Hardware Acceleration, I get no slide transition at all,
neither in presentation nor in preview. In preview the window turns to black and
remains that for about 6 seconds, then the whole slide is shown without
transition, same for first slide in presentation.
I've got OOo3.0 RC1 de on WinXP Home SP3 with graphic card NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti 200.
If I disable Hardware Acceleration, the transitions judder.
Comment 13 Regina Henschel 2008-09-10 16:35:23 UTC
Forgot to say, my comments are about the attached file, other transitions I
haven't test yet.
Comment 14 thb 2008-09-11 09:55:18 UTC
Ugh. So, something I'd like to ask all people being able to reproduce: could you
please rename/remove from basis30/program, check whether
the hw accel checkbox is still enabled, and the problem persists? If yes, rinse
& repeat this with in the same dir, and restore to its former place/name. I did change minor things
between 2.4.1 & 3.0, but nothing that could possibly explain why the previous
slide transition shows. :-/

And, for completeness: can anybody give me a ballpark milestone number when this
started to happen?
Comment 15 Regina Henschel 2008-09-11 13:52:46 UTC
OOo3.0RC1 German: disabled, active: Checkbox is
clickable. With unchecked box the transition judders, with checked box no
transition at all.

Both dll's diabled:  No line with hardware acceleration. Transitions work in
presentation and in preview but judder. disabled, active: Checkbox is
clickable. With unchecked box the transition judders, with checked box no
transition at all.

OOoDEV m29 crashes during opening the file.

OOoDEV m24 and OOoDEV m20 no transition at all, if hardware acceleration is checked.

OOo2.4.1 and OOoDEV m14 transition works both in presentation and in preview.

I haven't got any version between m14 and m20.

All on WinXP Home, Nvidia GeForce3 Ti200 with driver version (date
2006-10-22), the newest one from Nvidia-site.

Comment 16 thb 2008-09-11 22:45:55 UTC
Interesting. That rules out CWS canvas05 effectively, as that went into m22. If
m20 is confirmed _not_ to run properly, it must be something else - changes in
buildenv, compiler, ...?

@cl, @rt: any ideas? what else happened during that time?
Comment 17 rt 2008-09-12 08:52:18 UTC
No compiler or environment switch I'd be aware of. The only change I could find
was the introduction of environment variable
in milestone m22 (with CWS canvas05).
