Description sagittarius_wpd 2008-09-06 22:47:10 UTC
As part of my thesis presentation, I've made a slide with multiple elements
which move using the Move Diagonal Animation Effect. While presenting this slide
using OOo 2.4.1 the elements move fairly fast, in OOo 3 Beta they move slower
and jumpy.

I'm attaching the slide which I mentioned for evaluation.

I tried the issue in another computer with different configuration and still
slow. In fact, the rectangle that says "Autorización" tends to disappear.

Please tell me what other info do you need.

I was able to reproduce the bug with the given slide.

I am on windows XP laptop with SP3. I have a 1.66 Ghz processor and .99 GB of
Ram. The laptop is an IBM T60, and is has the basic graphics card for the type
of machine.

Using the slides provided by the original bug reporter. I played the slide right
when I opened them, no configuration changes were made.

I tested on version 2.4 4 times, and I tested on version 3 Beta, 4 times, and it
did look, as the original bug reporter put it, jumpy and a but slower. This slow
down only happened when the text box "Logging" and "Autorización" and it timing
was about the same before and after this problem.

While trying to get a video of this program I found something unusual, the
version 3 beta slide, actually ran better, while the version 2.4 slide ran
slower while getting the video.

I used the Trial Version of Easy Video Capture, Version 1.30, Build 43. The

Environment Settings:
      AMD Anthon 64 X2 Dual
      Core Processor 6000+
      3.01 GHz, 4.00GB of RAM
      NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT
      OS: Windows XP 64bit SP 2
   Open Office version OOo-Dev 3.0 (build OOO300_m4)
   Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003

Process 1:
   1)  open power point 2003
   2)  create a new presentation
   3)  create 8 blank slides
   4)  follow this format for inserting animations/sound into slides
       NOTE: Inserting done from drop down menu
             Movies and Sounds
             then either "Movie" or "Sound" and "from"              
either "Clip organizer" or "file"
      slide 1)  a microsoft office animation (.gif) {animation only}
      slide 2)  music video (.mpg)  {animation and sound}
      slide 3)  movie (.wmv)  {animation and sound}
      slide 4)  movie (.avi)  {animation and sound}
      slide 5)  music video (.avi) {animation and sound}
      slide 6)  a microsoft office sound clip (.wav) {sound only}
      slide 7)  song (.mp3) {sound only}
      slide 8)  song (.wav) {sound only}
   5)  save as a ppt presentation (refered to as PPtest)
   6)  play slide show
   7)  record results

Process 2:
   1)  start open office impress
   2)  select empty presentation and then click next
   3)  select original slide design and click next (output medium is screen)
   4)  select no effect for slide transition, medium speed, and default
presentation type and click create
   5)  follow steps 3 and 4 from process 1 except that slides 1 and 6 will
be filler slides
   6)  save as a odp (refered to as OOtest) and ppt (refer to as OOppttest)
   7)  play slide show
   8)  record results

Process 3:
   1)  start open office impress
   2)  open PPtest (ppt presentation created in Process 1)
   3)  play slide show
   4)  record results

   - .wmv format is the only inserted movie format that works in both Power 
Point and Impress as well as a ppt made in Power Point and opened in Open 
Office Impress.  For sounds, .wav imported from Microsoft clips works being 
opened in Impress, but for a regular song, it will work on both Power Point and 
Impress but not as a .ppt file made in Power Point and opened in Impress.

More details about the results can be found in this attachement...
   - Music and sound results.doc has a chart of compared results
   - attached are the slides I created
      ~ OOtest is sound and movie T2.odp
      ~ OOppttest is sound and movie T2 as ppt.ppt
      ~ PPtest is Presentation1.ppt

sorry, this was supposed to be to issue 93605.
Comment 7 andreschnabel 2008-10-29 17:22:37 UTC
The animations are smooth and fast for me. But I can confirm that the text
box(es) "Animation" disappear in presentation mode (only on Windows, not on Linux).

Summary changed and confirmed.

If the animation is still slow, please try to enable / disable hardware
accelleration under tools - options; - view. 
If this improves your situation, please file a new issue for this (with details
about used grphics card)
