Topic: Mis-timings of Animations after publishing

After publishing a presentation to the Connect Pro server, the few last animations were completely omitted from the module and a few before the last animation occurred at different times than how they were synced in the ppt file.  Is this a regular occurrence?  How can this be fixed?

Re: Mis-timings of Animations after publishing

Not all animations are supported in Presenter to Connect. Although the document says Breeze it is still valid for Connect. I don't think Adobe has an updated version.

Here is a list http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewCon … ;sliceId=2

You can also check to see if your issue is listed here: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewCon … ;sliceId=2

Re: Mis-timings of Animations after publishing

I appreciate the links you included in your post.  However, the first link shows substitutions for Power Point 2002.  I'm using 2003.  Is this a mis-print?  Does it still apply to 2003?  Thanks again.

To my knowledge it still applies to all versions of office past 2002.

Thanks,

JCole,

Shayla's correct.  Even though that doc is fairly old, the fact is that NOT ALL PowerPoint anims will properly convert when you publish your presentation.

Generally speaking, a good rule of thumb anyway is to adhere to the "KISS" principle of design, and that means animations as well.  True, you *could* use a really neat-looking animation, but in the end, will it support or detract from the content that you want your viewer to pay attention to?

Just my 2 cents here...

Re: Mis-timings of Animations after publishing

Hi Everyone,

I just checked with the Product Manager for Adobe Presenter and I have a few things to report. 

* The old KB article that lists out animations not supported in Breeze 4.1 does NOT apply to Presenter 7.
* There does exist a KB article on animation issues in Presenter 7 here: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewCon … ;sliceId=2

Anything outside of this list that doesn't work in Presenter 7 is a potential bug and should be reported to Adobe Support.

Best,
David
