CTAN Up­date: an­i­mate

Date: May 3, 2007 9:12:50 AM CEST
On Wed, 2 May 2007, Alexan­der Grahn sub­mit­ted an up­date to the an­i­mate pack­age. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/an­i­mate Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: cre­at­ing portable PDF an­i­ma­tions from graph­ics files and in­line graph­ics Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This pack­age pro­vides an in­ter­face to cre­ate portable, JavaScript driven PDF an­i­ma­tions from sets of (vec­tor) graph­ics 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 and LaTeX -> dvips -> ps2pdf (Ghostscript). The re­sult­ing PDF can be viewed in cur­rent Adobe Read­ers on all sup­ported plat­forms. The new re­lease is based on Op­tional Con­tent Groups (OCGs), aka PDF-Lay­ers, to make an­i­ma­tions fully func­tional in Adobe Reader 8 as well. In­ter­est­ingly, OCG-based an­i­ma­tions per­form bet­ter in older Reader ver­sions, which might be a bug in Reader 8. There­fore, a sec­ond ver­sion of the pack­age, `an­i­mate-noocg', is pro­vided, which still uses the old, non-OCG-based method. Com­mand, \newframe*, for use within the `an­i­matein­line' en­vi­ron­ment, has been added. If placed af­ter a par­tic­u­lar frame it causes the an­i­ma­tion to pause at that frame. The an­i­ma­tion con­tin­ues nor­mally af­ter click­ing it again.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://dante.ctan.org/tex-archive/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).
