"If any of these purposes sound useful to you, then you should take the time to investigate the two means of animation in Impress: The Animation dialog window opened from the Insert menu, and the Custom Animation Pane. Both work on any sort of visual object, including imported pictures, shape primitives, or graphic text, although obviously some objects are more suitable for certain types of animation than others.

"Despite its name, the pane is for those who prefer OpenOffice.org to do most of the work. By contrast, the Animation dialog is for those who prefer to build their own animation. The two systems cannot both be applied to the same object, although you can use both on the same slide with different objects."
