# animate graphic with decreasing numbers and missing 0 [closed]

I want to animate different png-files into one graphic in LaTeX. I use:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{animate}

\begin{document}
\frame{
\frametitle{Monte Carlo Simulation - 22 trading days, 1000 simulations}
\vspace{-0.5cm}
\begin{center}
\animategraphics[scale=0.5,autoplay]{5}{3d}{211}{1}
\end{center}
}

\end{document}


So the decreasing from 211 to 210 and so on works, but the problem is, that LaTeX e.g. searches for the file "3d099":

! Package animate Error: Neither of the files
(animate)                3d099.pdf',
(animate)                3d099.mps',
(animate)                3d099.png',
(animate)                3d099.jpg',
(animate)                3d099.jpeg',
(animate)                3d099.jbig2',
(animate)                3d099.jb2',
(animate)                3d099.jp2',
(animate)                3d099.j2k' or
(animate)                3d099.jpx',
(animate)                could be found.
(animate)                Wrong file type? Mis-spelled file name?.

See the animate package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
...

l.865 }

?


But the file name is "3d99.png", so what do I have to change, that LaTeX does it correct?

I strongly recommend to use zero-padded-digit filenames when dealing with animations. That is, if you have 11 files, names should be base00, base01, ... base10. Besides from solving this particular case, it will simplify most things (as encoding a movie for instance). –  guillem Dec 5 '12 at 11:38
+1 It seems you detected a bug. Please use zero-padded file numbers in case of down-counting, for now. Will be fixed asap. –  AlexG Dec 6 '12 at 8:15
