I am using LibreOffice and the Vortex and Honeycomb Transition effects do not work on my laptop despite trying every possible variation of OpenGL / OpenCL and visual options within the options menu. Every other transition effect works. 

My laptops specs are: -

Thank you for reporting the bug. 
Could you please create and attach a screencast showing the steps?
There are various free screencast software available for use, including Camstudio (Windows), Jing (Mac), Simple Screen Recorder (Linux) or screencast-o-matic.com (Web).

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the requested screencast is provided.

I have reproduced this in LibreOffice on OpenSUSE Leap 15.2.

- Vortex is indistinguishable from the default transition; the slide simply appears.
- Honeycomb looks like the Wipe transition, but going from left to right instead of going top to bottom (Wipe). This does not look like the effect suggested by the transition's name and icon.
