Animation (animate) in Beamer not working

Postby TimeMen » Sun May 06, 2018 12:01 pm

Hey there,
wanna use animate in beamer to show my audience an animation about kochs' snowflace.
Have splitted the .gif file into 7 .png files and tried to include them with the following line:

\usepackage{animate}
...
\animategraphics[loop,autoplay,scale=0.5]{1}{Koch-}{0}{6}

After a quick translation into LaTeX i can't see the animation in xReader, but in Evince.
But it's not animating as it's defined in the above mentioned line.

Using TexMaker / TexStudio to create my Beamer presentation and I'm working on Linux using xReader/Evince to view pdf files.

Hope you can help me.
Best wishes,
TimeMen

Welcome to the forum!

For us to be able to reproduce the issue, could you please post the complete example code? You can also post the PDF output as attachment here (the attachment link is below the text edit field when writing). So we could test the PDF with our PDF reader versions too.

Hey Stefan,
I'm from Germany too.
Is there any good German forum to use?
I'm still new to LaTeX and my English isn't that good.

I fixed the issue by placing the pictures all in one row, which is much better for the audience.

But thanks for the answer and for advising me to send the .tex and .pdf file to you.
Yours sincerely,
Timemen

Hi,

yes, there are two good German language forums:

  • TeXwelt.de : perfect for specific questions (für ganz konkrete Fragen mit genug Details/Code)

  • goLaTeX.de : for lengthy discussions or unclear questions (wenn man nicht genau weiß, was zu fragen oder was an Details mitzuteilen)

I prefer TeXwelt.de. There are great helpers. It just requires questions to be clear and with sufficient details to verify the problem and to post an answer - without inquiring for further missing details.

TeXwelt.de has the same intention as we ("Wir lieben gute Fragen!"). We are happy about good questions, since your questions and our answers build a knowledge database, sorted by topics (tags, "Themen") and quality (votes, Stimmen), so in the long term the solution archive grows.
