Animation in papers…

So recently I was very excited about creating an animation from an ipe figure (see here). Interestingly, it is surprisingly easy to include such an animation in a latex document and see it in the resulting pdf. You would need to use acroread to see the animation (doesn’t work for okular, too bad).

Here is a minimal latex example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{animate}
\begin{document}
\centerline{\animategraphics% [autoplay,autoresume,width=0.8\linewidth,%
controls,loop,buttonsize=4em]%
{2}{figs/animation_1}{0}{22}}
Animation of algorithm -- you would need acrobat reader to see the animation - click the figure to make it start.
\end{document}

Here is the resulting pdf, and the complete source of this example with the ipe figure is here.
