beamer – A class for pro­duc­ing pre­sen­ta­tions and slides

The beamer class can be used for pro­duc­ing slides. The class works in both PostScript and di­rect PDF out­put modes, us­ing the pgf graph­ics sys­tem for vi­sual ef­fects.

Con­tent is cre­ated in the frame en­vi­ron­ment, and each frame can be made up of a num­ber of slides us­ing a sim­ple no­ta­tion for spec­i­fy­ing ma­te­rial to ap­pear on each slide within a frame. Short ver­sions of ti­tle, au­thors, in­sti­tute can also be spec­i­fied as op­tional pa­ram­e­ters. Whole frame graph­ics are sup­ported by plain frames. The class sup­ports fig­ure and ta­ble en­vi­ron­ments, trans­parency ef­fects, vary­ing slide tran­si­tions and an­i­ma­tions. Beamer also pro­vides com­pat­i­bil­ity with other pack­ages like pros­per.

The pack­age now in­cor­po­rates the func­tion­al­ity of the for­mer trans­la­tor pack­age, which is used for cus­tomis­ing the pack­age for use in other lan­guage en­vi­ron­ments.

Beamer de­pends on the fol­low­ing other pack­ages: at­begshi, etool­box, hy­per­ref, if­pdf, and pgf.
