                              The animate Package


    Alexander Grahn


    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.

    The resulting PDF can be viewed in current Adobe Readers on all supported

    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.
