Hi Christoph!

Oh, I noticed in the comments to your blog posting [1] that you found
the workaround that also "worked" for me in the past.

But since we already talk about the templates, may I add some thoughts?
But first a question - are the current templates meant to used as
official marketing templates for LibreOffice? You know, the artistic
quality is (as usual - so to say) just fantastic ;-)
Thank you so much! Well, I don't see no problems on this (Is this phrase correct? :/). Since my work is "libre", it can be changed by everyone to better fit into marketing purposes. :)

When I looked a the designs, I had to remember one particular statement
of one of the supervisors at my university. When a student once held a
presentation with gradients that caused darker slide edges, he noted:
"Engineers worked very hard on data project technology to ensure
homogeneous lighting for the whole picture." This, it seems that the
design might only work well if people know that this effect is really
intended ... so please don't get me wrong, I just wanted to share what
made me think about slide designs a few years ago.
I understand the point of your supervisor. And he's right; the Vignetting Effect was an [undesirable] effect in photography and even today is used with much caution by most photographers. It's easy overdo its usage. Although, I personaly love this effect - so I probably overdone on it. :-[ . I'll try to reduce it a little bit to make it less perceptive and more natural. Thank you for this thinking!

Waiting for your comments on my 3D stuff. :P But just do it if you'll have time, of course. By the way, a little note: today I had sucess to convert the LOO logo to blender curves... :) A footnote after that: If you think the Impress bugs are bad, you should see Blender bugs... :O
