The following symptom can occur when you create a movie presentation containing multiple slides, and the slides are animated using slide transition effects. When you view the movie presentation in PowerPoint or in QuickTime, the slide transition effects that appear are different than the slide transition effects that you selected when you created the movie presentation.

For example, if you select Checkerboard Across in the Slide Transitions dialog box, when you view the movie presentation in PowerPoint or in QuickTime, the slide transition effect that appears instead is the QuickTime Matrix Wipe transition.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
