I made a presentation using Beamer class of Tex Live. But it looks very ordinary. I want to bring into some animations such as slides should change automatically after few seconds. I tried doinf it with the command \transduration{0.75} as shown. However, it is not working.

This is my good goal.
This is wonderful experience.

Please suggest some alternatives.

Pretty please, don't call a presentation a "ppt". It's the name of the old PowerPoint format which is obsolete now. – marczellm Feb 4 '14 at 12:12
Simply call it PDF, for example. – AlexG Feb 4 '14 at 12:21

The effect of\transduration is limited to the Full Screen / Presentation modes of Evince, Adobe Reader and possibly other PDF readers.

@Herbert: Other readers work too. Answer edited. – AlexG Feb 4 '14 at 12:48
Ah good to know. Using `acroread' is no fun ... – Herbert Feb 4 '14 at 13:23
