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.
