What is the best package/style to build a presentation? I use PDFSLID. Any better?
Though beamer is my favorite, I would like to mention the
powerdot requires PSTricks. As I already mentioned here, it offers many styles and allows creating your own style, further it provides automatic overlays and a handout mode.
Some demonstration files for a quick impression:
- Compiled examples from the documentation
- A thesis defence (source)
- A research talk
- Presentation and powerdot demo by Uwe Siart
- The nice Jena style (btw. I've studied there :-)
Finally, here's a very nice overview by Michael Wiedmann: Screen Presentation Tools. It compares packages like beamer, prosper, slides, powerdot and many more.
beamer. It has a good documentation, which can be found in the CTAN archive.
