                             =====================
                              The animate Package
                             =====================

Author:

    Alexander Grahn


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.

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

    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.
