CTAN Update: animate

Date: May 10, 2008 1:25:35 PM CEST
On Fri, 9 May 2008 Alexander Grahn submitted an update to the animate package for creating portable PDF animations from graphics files and inline graphics. 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 License type: lppl Announcement text:
Animations produced with this updated version of animate.sty can now be played in the current Adobe Reader 8 at a reasonable speed as well. You might want to experiment with the graphical hardware acceleration feature that was introduced in Reader 8. Go to menu `Edit'-->`Preferences'-->`Page Display'-->`Rendering' to see whether hardware acceleration is available. A 2D GPU acceleration check box will be visible if a supported video card has been detected. (This is currently a Windows-only feature, though.) Feedback is highly welcome, as in my case (different platform + unsupported video card) there is no hardware acceleration available. Without acceleration, animations are still somewhat slower (by approx. 20 %) in Reader 8 than in older versions.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/animate . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=animate (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
