CTAN Up­date: an­i­mate

Date: May 10, 2008 1:25:35 PM CEST
On Fri, 9 May 2008 Alexan­der Grahn sub­mit­ted an up­date to the an­i­mate pack­age for cre­at­ing portable PDF an­i­ma­tions from graph­ics files and in­line graph­ics. The pack­age pro­vides an in­ter­face to cre­ate portable, JavaScript driven PDF an­i­ma­tions from sets of graph­ics files or from in­line graph­ics, such as LaTeX pic­ture en­vi­ron­ment, PSTricks or pgf/TikZ gen­er­ated pic­tures, or just from type­set text. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/an­i­mate Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
An­i­ma­tions pro­duced with this up­dated ver­sion of an­i­mate.sty can now be played in the cur­rent Adobe Reader 8 at a rea­son­able speed as well. You might want to ex­per­i­ment with the graph­i­cal hard­ware ac­cel­er­a­tion fea­ture that was in­tro­duced in Reader 8. Go to menu `Edit'-->`Pref­er­ences'-->`Page Dis­play'-->`Ren­der­ing' to see whether hard­ware ac­cel­er­a­tion is avail­able. A 2D GPU ac­cel­er­a­tion check box will be vis­i­ble if a sup­ported video card has been de­tected. (This is cur­rently a Win­dows-only fea­ture, though.) Feed­back is highly wel­come, as in my case (dif­fer­ent plat­form + un­sup­ported video card) there is no hard­ware ac­cel­er­a­tion avail­able. Without ac­cel­er­a­tion, an­i­ma­tions are still some­what slower (by ap­prox. 20 %) in Reader 8 than in older ver­sions.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/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).
