Problem with narrations losing sync with animations in PowerPoint 2013

I created a PowerPoint using 2007 version. I needed to turn it into a wmv video so had to upgrade to 2013. Problem is now that the recorded narrations play first then the animations afterwards, instead of at the same time as I originally recorded them.

WTF is going on?

In 2013 (and 2010) you can trigger the narration to play triggered by bookmarks added to the video timeline. You would need to re-insert the video though. Not sure if this works when you create a video.

UPDATE I did a quick test and it looks like it doesn't work when you make a video.

I have come to the conclusion that a lot of the software giants suck at what they do unless they are doing this intentionally. Narration in 2007 do not work the same in 2010. The work to redo the narrations hardly seemed worth it. I decided to get a $30 piece of software called FastStone Capture. It does exactly what I need and does a bang-up job providing near HD quality video and audio.

I am in the process of demanding a refund from Microcrap for Office 2013 (online service) Why should I pay for something that can not use an older version PowerPoint properly? Also 2010 and 2013 have no way to adjust the sound quality like 2007 does. It is not progress. It is de-evolving. Screw them and their improvements!
