Recorded Animations Not Working In Presenter (8.0.1)

Apr 2, 2013 1:30 PM

My animation timings are not working when published to Presenter (8.0.1). Narration timing is good, but all the animations simply manifest one after the other, not as I recorded them as I clicked through (and yes each one is set for "click"). I also have the playback option set for "Use PPTX Slide Time"

    The animations do need to be set to "on click", but the timing must be configured within the Sync Audio tool. You can see this done in this tutorial: http://youtu.be/aIw6f7xppcE

     

    Presenter will not recognize the timing options set in PPT.

    You need to give time for the animation to happen. So if it has a slow fade as the animation and you cue the next animation .5 seconds later, it will force that animation to finish, or appear to pop in.

    It may be related to the the first animation set to with previous. There is a known issue with Presenter when dealing with slides that have a mix of on-click and with/after previous animations:

     

    • Adobe Presenter audio cannot be synchronized correctly with animations if a slide contains a mix of on-click animations and after/previous animations.

    Workaround: For the Adobe Presenter audio to sync correctly, ensure that all animations on a slide are on-click animations.

     

    The most commonly seen issues with Presenter can be found here: http://helpx.adobe.com/presenter/kb/top-issues-presenter-8.html

     

    The best option may be to elminate animation elements untill you can identify the one that is causing the issue. I suppose it could be something like the object that is animated (I've seen non JPEG/GIF images do odd things) is not converting to Flash properly. I don't believe it is the animation, as the fade-in animation has worked for years.

    Hi... just wanted to add my 2 cents to this issue - as I have just encountered it. 

     

    For the record, I have been using Presenter for about 5 years now and have always used combinations of on-click and after previous animations.  I was even using them with Presenter 8 as recently as March 2013.  It wasn't until I had my MS Office upgraded from 2007 to 2010 that I experienced this problem.  So it leads me to believe it is more of a compatibility issue with PPT 2010.  Wish I could go back to Office 2010, as this is going to cost me a lot of extra work.
