# Animating multiple .eps files (>2000) using \animategraphics

I am trying to animate a set of .eps files (>2000 images) which will give me a nice animation, but when I include it in my latex document using the MWE it is not giving me anything, but some errors. But when I use the same with .png files it works, can anyone help me with this. (The file name are as (picture-1.eps,...,picture2000.eps) and these figures are obtained from matlab for an experiment)

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\usepackage{animate}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[H]

\animategraphics[loop,autoplay,width=\textwidth,height=.5\textheight]{12}{picture-}{1}{2000}

\end{figure}

\end{document}

• Does it work with 2 eps files? Are you using LaTeX or pdfLaTeX? What are the exact error messages you receive? – darthbith Feb 11 '16 at 19:24
• Nope it is not working with 2 eps files either, and I am using PdfLaTex and the errors I am getting are: 1. Package animate Error: Neither of the files (But the files are present in the folder I am working) 2. running in backwards compatibility mode (unsuitable tick labels; missing features). 3. Data encoding is 'utf8'., where 2,3 are warnings – Raaja Feb 11 '16 at 19:29
• Then see here for eps in pdflatex: tex.stackexchange.com/q/383/32374 – darthbith Feb 11 '16 at 19:31
• Also, your second error looks like a warning from pgfplots that you have not set the compatibility level. If you are using pgfplots, make sure to write \pgfplotsset{compat=1.13} in your preamble. – darthbith Feb 11 '16 at 19:33
• The easiest is probably to convert them to PDF or PNG – darthbith Feb 11 '16 at 19:37
