Open Office impress's jerky animations

Has anyone managed to get clean, smooth animations out of openoffice impress? Even fading a slide in and out is an obvious 4 step fade.

I'm using version 2.0.2, and have encountered this on both Gentoo and Fedora cores 4 & 5.

The Gentoo box can certainly handle the graphics, having an nVidia GeForce 6200 graphics card (with the proper nVidia drivers downloaded from and an AMD 4400+ cpu. Both the Fedora machines aren't quite up to those specs, but they can certainly play most decent 3d video games. You'd think that fading in and panning to the right on a 150K jpeg would be no big deal.

From OO Impress, have you tried Tools -> Options -> -> Memory. Adjust the Graphics Cache values (increase or decrease) to see what effect that has. It's possible that adjusting the size of the cache will improve performance.

General rule of thumb: don't let the cache run empty. That will cause skips (at least, it works that way with cd ripping and burning for both audio and data). So, it seems to me that animations in Impress may be similarly affected by cache size.
