CTAN Update: animate

Date: May 3, 2007 9:12:50 AM CEST
On Wed, 2 May 2007, Alexander Grahn submitted an update to the animate package. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/animate Summary description: creating portable PDF animations from graphics files and inline graphics License type: lppl Announcement text: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This package provides an interface to create portable, JavaScript driven PDF animations from sets of (vector) graphics files or from inline (vector) graphics, such as LaTeX-picture, PSTricks or pgf/TikZ generated pictures, or just from typeset text. It supports the usual PDF making workflows, i. e. pdfLaTeX and LaTeX -> dvips -> ps2pdf (Ghostscript). The resulting PDF can be viewed in current Adobe Readers on all supported platforms. The new release is based on Optional Content Groups (OCGs), aka PDF-Layers, to make animations fully functional in Adobe Reader 8 as well. Interestingly, OCG-based animations perform better in older Reader versions, which might be a bug in Reader 8. Therefore, a second version of the package, `animate-noocg', is provided, which still uses the old, non-OCG-based method. Command, \newframe*, for use within the `animateinline' environment, has been added. If placed after a particular frame it causes the animation to pause at that frame. The animation continues normally after clicking it again.
