oh no, there you have even less chances to get an answer.
You may have to write to d...@openoffice.org or d...@graphics.openoffice.org, 
you'll find the developer/s who designed that API.

I guess nobody answered you because nobody knows. At least, I have no idea, 
never tried that (nor understand what a "motion path Animation to an XShape" 
On the other hand, Draw/Impress API is the worst document OOo API (just go to 
the Dev's Guide and see the holes in the documentation, lots of features for 
which there is already an API are not even mentioned).
And if you take a look at the documentation for the module in question
you'll see missing descriptions for


so lucky you if you can get an idea of how things work with the animation API 
ust by reading the abstract specification.

If I compare this state with 
I come to the concusion that some developers don't care much about API users.
So luck with them at d...@openoffice.org or d...@graphics.openoffice.org.
