# CTAN Update: animate

Date: July 4, 2007 11:15:10 AM CEST
On Wed, 4 Jul 2007, Alexander Grahn submitted an update to the animate package. The package provides an interface to create portable, JavaScript driven PDF animations from sets of graphics files or from inline graphics, such as LaTeX picture environment, PSTricks or pgf/TikZ generated pictures, or just from typeset text. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/animate Summary description: creating portable PDF animations from graphics files and inline graphics License type: lppl Announcement text:
Today's update adds 3 options: begin={<begin text>} end={<end text>} timeline=<timeline file> The first two are for use with the animateinline' environment only. <begin text> and <end text> are inserted into the code at start and end of each frame. Mainly used for setting up some drawing environment, such as begin={\begin{pspicture}(...)(...)}, end={\end{pspicture}}. The third option associates a timeline with the graphical material that has been embedded by \animategraphics or ainmateinline' and provides extended control of the order of appearance, superposition and repetition of the embedded material. It allows to contruct more sophisticated animations and may help to reduce the file size of the resulting PDF.
