I 'm not a TEX expert and I am trying to ceate some animations in a beamer presentation using the animate package. Making the animations in a "normal" document (not a presentation) everything is fine. When I try to put these animations into Beamer nothing happens. There is only the first frame(?) and nothing is working. I use the XELATEX flavor of TEX.

For example, I can compile the code found in the second frame (answered by AlexG) in the page Animating Protocols, with LATEX, but not with XELATEX.

Is there something I can do?

Thanks in advance.


  • No problem here with up-to-date TeXLive-2013 and MiKTeX-2.9. I ran xelatex on the code linked in your question. – AlexG Apr 24 '14 at 6:24
  • which reader did you try? It works with Adobe Reader and PDF-XChange viewer but not with SumatraPDF or TeXworks viewer. – Ignasi Apr 24 '14 at 8:48

    the only thing that was needed is just an update of the packages. thank you very much, Kostas. – user50644 Apr 27 '14 at 13:44
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an issue fixed by an update. – Joseph Wright Apr 27 '14 at 14:36
