Are these effects only available in the beamer class? Are there similar commands in other packages/classes?

1/22/2012- I want to have access to basic animation tools in order to make "live" text. The only package that I know is beamer but that assumes that you want to make a power-point style or slide presentation. I want some of the same capabilities but I do not want the way beamer changes all default settings of article class.

For example consider explaining the stages of long division in an ordinary document.

What is the intention? Do you search an alternative to beamer – Marco Daniel Jan 22 '12 at 11:08
For animation tools you can use the package animate ;-) – Marco Daniel Jan 22 '12 at 18:05

Have a look at, http://www.stat.wisc.edu/courses/st371-lindstro/hwfall02/texpower.sty, which defines some of these transitions.
