The attached presentation contains a single piece of text with Swivel entrance animation.
Save it as PPT, and reopen it.
=> The animation is disregarded, the text simply appears during slideshow (though it still shows as swivel in the animation list).
Observed using LO 6.1 beta1 & 3.3.0 / Windows 7.
It seems like swivel animation isn't interpreted properly in PPTX format, either, see bug 113818.

Interestingly, the same effect in a PPT created in PowerPoint is played fine.
