Description Joe 2020-04-25 13:27:24 UTC
Smooth fade transition not working well in Impress, either flashes/flickers black and next slide appears.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create two different slides in Impress
2.Add a "fade" transition, change from "black" to smooth
3.Start slideshow from first slide, advance to next slide

Actual Results:
Screen either turns black or flashes black and next slide 'appears' during transition from slide to slide

Expected Results:
One slide fades gradually into another

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I have tested this across MULTIPLE versions of LibreOffice, MULTIPLE Operating systems (various Linux distros and even Windows), and MULTIPLE styles of graphics hardware (Nvidia GT/GTX, AMD A series graphics). The effect varies but the desired effect never happens as it should.

Can not confirm on Windows 10 Home 64-bit en-US (1909)
Intel HD Graphic 620 GPU with
2020-04-25 TB77 build of master
Version: (x64)
Build ID: fe1cf8656d6963844553993a77ef565fb2fbeda7
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: Skia/Vulkan; VCL: win; 
Locale: en-US (en_US); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

The "Fade" transition, both 'Through black' and 'Smoothly' render a smooth incremental transition from one slide image to the next. The 'Through black' or 'Smoothly' effects fade out the first slide, while fading in the second slide.

Isolation of the two slide images is increased by lengthening the duration (from default 2.0 sec to 4.0 sec worked well).

Transition rendered as expected in all graphics modes:
CPU only
OpenGL rendering
Skia Vulkan rendering
Skia raster rendering

Rule of thumb is search before reporting. And this looks like a known issue.
