Is there the possibility or any workaround to download a pdf of a Google presentation with animations, by keeping the animations as different slides?

    Can't believe there still isn't a solution for this. I do most of my presentations in Beamer but have one I wanted to use, that's a Google Slides... Dec 2 '19 at 1:12

There is a workaround:

  1. Export Google Slides to odt
  2. Use "Expand animations" plugin for LibreOffice Impress

I once used it and was surprisingly satisfied with the result. The positioning was pretty accurate and animations were preserved almost everywhere (I had to do few manual adjustments though).

The only problem is that plugin work time seems to heavily (non-linearly) depend on presentation size. Splitting my presentation in two reduced export time from ~20 minutes to ~3 in total.
