# Animate package - output graphic size is smaller than original

I successfully created an animation PDF from mulitple PDF pages by using the animate package, but the problem is that the output graphics size is about half the size of the original.

How can I preserve the original size? Any hints?

Here is my .tex code for running pdflatex:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\pagestyle{empty}
\usepackage{animate}
\begin{document}
\animategraphics[controls,autoplay,loop, width=1\linewidth]{1}{file}{1}{13}
\end{document}

Just omit any post-scaling options, such as width or scale. Then the original size, that is the size of the first graphics of the sequence, will be used for the animation.

In your case, width=1\linewidth will resize the width of the animation to the line width of the hosting document. This is the largest width I would recommend, as a larger animation would extend into the page margin or beyond, generating overfull hbox warning messages. If the result is indeed half the original size, the original size would be far too big to fit into your hosting document. Thus, width=1\linewidth seems to be a sensible choice.

try \makebox[\textwidth]{\animate....} –  Herbert Jan 4 '12 at 11:03
Strange. \includegraphics{file1} and \animategraphics{1}{file}{1}{13} should produce boxes of exactly the same size. –  AlexG Jan 4 '12 at 11:09
Put \noindent\animategraphics[controls,autoplay,loop,width=\textwidth]{1}{file}{1}{‌​13} on a line of its own. This will produce an animation which takes up the maximum allowable width without overfull \hbox messages. –  AlexG Jan 4 '12 at 11:16
