The interactiveanimation Package

	This package provides an interface to create Portable Document Format
	(PDF) files with branching animations. Animations are built up as a set
	of concatenated interactive frames. Each interactive frame can be set
	to display an image and a set of buttons that allows the course of
	the overall animation to be controlled by the user. Buttons can be
	configured to transfer the action focus to another interactive frame
	and to display an animated image sequence before the forthcoming
	frame is displayed.

	By now, the only supported way for compiling using this package is by
	producing the PDF file with pdfTeX.

	The final PDF can be viewed in current Adobe Readers on all supported
	platforms as long as they have JavaScript support.

	Note: this file only gives a summary of usage and available button
	options. Please refer to the documentation `interactiveanimation.pdf'
	for details and examples.
