 The animate Package

===================================


1. Description
==============

This package provides an interface to create portable, JavaScript driven PDF
animations from sets of (vector) graphics or rasterized image 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, LaTeX -> dvips
-> ps2pdf (Ghostscript)/Distiller and (Xe)LaTeX -> (x)dvipdfmx, LuaLaTeX.

The resulting PDF with animations can be viewed in Acrobat Reader (except on
mobile devices), in PDF-XChange and in Foxit Reader.

Note, this file only gives a summary of usage and available package and
command options. Please refer to the documentation `animate.pdf' for details
and examples.
