2.1.1172 Part 4 Section 4.6.1, anim (Animate)

For additional notes that apply to this portion of the standard, please see the notes for tnLst, §4.6.87(b) .

a. The standard states that the to attribute specifies the ending value for the animation as a percentage.

PowerPoint does not specify the ending value as a percentage.

b. The standard does not state a default value for the calcmode attribute.

PowerPoint uses a default value of lin for the calcmode attribute.

c. The standard does not state a default value for the valueType attribute.

PowerPoint uses a default value of num for the valueType attribute.

d. The standard states that the values of the from attribute are defined by the XML Schema string datatype.

PowerPoint requires that the value of the from attribute be specified as a preset string value, as specified in the to element; as a string that represents a color value and a real number, as specified in the to element; or as an arbitrary string.

e. The standard states that the values of the by attribute are defined by the XML Schema string datatype.

PowerPoint requires that the value of the by attribute be specified as a preset string value, as specified in the to element; as a string that represents a color value and a real number, as specified in the to element; or as an arbitrary string.

f. The standard states that the values of the to attribute are defined by the XML Schema string datatype.

PowerPoint requires that the value of the to attribute be specified as a preset string value, as specified in the to element; as a string that represents a color value and a real number, as specified in the to element; or as an arbitrary string.

g. The standard places no restrictions on the number of attrName child elements parented by the attrNameLst element when inside the anim element.

PowerPoint requires that there be at least one attrName child element of the attrNameLst element when inside an anim element; if more than one attrName child element exists, only the first will be used.

h. The standard places no restrictions on the relationship between the by, from, and to attributes.

The attributes from, to, and by must be used in one of the following combinations:

from_to: when the from and to attributes have values of the same type;

from_by: when the from and by attributes have values of the same type but the to attribute is undefined;

to_only: when the to attribute is defined but the from attribute is undefined;

by_only: when the by attribute is defined but the from and to attributes are undefined.

All other combinations are invalid.

When the attributes are used with a to_only combination or a by-only combination, the following criteria determine the starting value of the animation:

when the attribute valueType is num, the starting value is 0.0;

when the attribute valueType is clr, the starting value is an HSL color in which all spectrum is 0;

when the attribute valueType is str, the starting value is an empty string.

The attribute by is not used in from_to and to_only combinations.

i. The standard places no restrictions on what the grpId attribute refers to.

PowerPoint requires that the grpId attribute reference a group that is present in the timing tree.
