[pstricks] animate and powerdot

Dear all,

I have some trouble with animate and powerdot:

The attached code is an animation describing digital communication. When compiled in a classical document then the pdf is perfect.

When I insert this animation in powerdot, it is ok in handout mode but in slide mode some parts of the animation are missing and I should play with \scalebox to try to get rid of this problem. (see file list below)

Any help is welcome.


Best regards,
