Description Olivier Tilloy 2018-11-16 12:51:07 UTC
(initially reported on ubuntu: https://launchpad.net/bugs/1797373)

Normal effects *work*: Wipe, Wheel, Uncover, Bars, Checkers, Shape, Box, Wedge, Venetian, Fade, Cut, Cover, Dissolve, Comb, Push, Split, Diagonal.

3D-Effects *don’t work*: Tiles, Cube, Circles, Helix, Fall, Turn Around, Iris, Turn Down, Rochade, 3D Venetian, Static, Fine Dissolve, Vortex, Ripple, Glitter, Honeycomb, Newsflash.

Normal effects works perfectly, 3D-effects either don't work at all or when played with F5, shows a flashing screen.
Tearing is also seen. Hardware acceleration is checked.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new presentation in impress
2. Apply 3D transitions to slides
3. Start the slideshow with F5

Actual Results:
Some 3D transitions don't work at all (remain black), some flash/tear quite visibly.

Expected Results:
3D transitions are rendered smoothly.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

While the problem might be gone by the time we get to, for now I can *confirm* that Olivier's observations. 3D-transitions do not work for me, regardless if hardware acceleration and OpenGL are activated or deactivated.

Thank you for reporting the bug.
Could you please try to reproduce it with a master build from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/ ?
You can install it alongside the standard version.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the master build

I can confirm with 6.2, although I've got a couple extras that didn't work:

Fade, Cut, Tiles, Cube, Circles, Helix, Fall, Turn around, Iris, Turn down, Rochade, 3D venetian, Static, Fine dissolve, Vortex, Ripple, Glitter, Honeycomb, Newsflash.

Sometimes nothing happens, sometimes there's that tearing happening.

Removing hardware acceleration doesn't change anything.

Comment 5 Henrique SantAnna 2019-05-11 15:04:18 UTC
Tested and can confirm that 3D transitions are now working as expected. But 6.2.3 shows only black screen while any 3d transition is running.

(Arch Linux)

3D transitions OK:

Reproducible (as in, 3D transitions don't work) on both Ubuntu 19.10 and Debian Stretch against latest 6.3.2 deb from:
