Cause

This behavior is by design. When you set the duration of Smooth Start and Smooth End animation effects, the sum of those values may exceed the run-time of the animation. When this happens, PowerPoint automatically reduces the length of these effects so that they both fit within the allocated time frame.

Workaround

To work around this behavior, increase the duration run-time of the animation. To do this, change the Duration value in the Timing group on the Animation tab to a larger value. Then, set the Smooth Start and Smooth End animation effects to the values that you want.
