Exporting a SWF from a presentation loses automatically happening transitions (animations set to happen after a previous animation or after entering slide), loses slide transitions, and looses automatic actions instead requiring mouse clicks to proceed.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a presentation that uses object animations and transitions
2. export to swf
3. watch swf
An SWF made from an automated and animated presentation is not automated or animated, despite SWF files being able to contain such data.
An SWF exported functioning identically (or at least nearly identically) to the presentation.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 220.127.116.11 release
Please attach a sample document. Marking as NEEDINFO - once you attach a sample presentation set to UNCONFIRMED. Thanks

ODP with timed transitions added in
This is an ODP with timed transitions added that work.
Created attachment 103163 [details]
SWF exported that's supposed to have timed transitions, but reverted to clicks
This is a SWF generated by exporting from the same-named ODP. Using it reveal that transitions have disappeared, replaced with a click-slide-show that goes between static slides. Considering SWFs have support for timing, this is odd behavior, in addition to making Libre Office Presentations useless for many web-based uses they should be ideal for.
As requested, sample documents have been attached. Both a source ODP and a resulting SWF have been attached. The differences between the two files demonstrates that timing aspects are removed by the export to SWF files.
CONFIRMED on Ubuntu 12.04.4 + LO 18.104.22.168 and FF 30

Confirmed -- The exported SWF does not include the same animations as are present in the ODP file.
I don't know if we've ever exported animations into SWF, so I agree that this is most likely an enhancement.

In the spirit of giving this a proper status, I have to admit I wasn't sure what importance to give it as a Libre Office User. Since it affects my primary use of Libre Office, I would have personally given it highest, but chose as medium as I don't know how many others would view it the same. But here's my thoughts (if this kind of thing doesn't belong here, feel free to delete).
1. For posting things to view (including presentations) online SWF files are one of the standards. (Great example: Youtube accepts the uploading of SWF files for videos, and people embed Youtube videos for site presentations everywhere.)
2. The posting-online-aspect greatly affects program use in our internet-heavy world.
3. At present, to try and get a more accurate conversion into SWF, pretty much every conversion tool or method to get an ODP into SWF format ends up having to require conversion to PPT. This not only loses data inherent to the ODP, but also makes a prime competitor a necessary step.
4. online presentations are VERY visible. When some list credits and include the program they used, that's a lot more exposure for LibreOffice if it streamlines the process.
