Right, I just tend to do linear (not 2D) presentations, subslides maybe
useful for additional details showed if required by questions. So the
animation does not convey any information, and since is so fancy it is
actually distracting ;). And in the back of my mind, it looks like the
animation is a kind of unprofessional childish showing-off kind of thing.

As a first step I would like to disable the animation in livereveal/RISE, I
can live with the animation on nbviewer.I'll try to look into
slides.reveal.tpl, thanks for the pointer.

 Are you still referring to the animation or to the powerpoint/libreoffice
conversion here?
