I have a set of 23 pictures that, when combined, give a nice animation. But I don't want to make 23 separate frames for it.

I read that there is an option using the animate package but I can't seem to find any example where I could see how to do that (the official animate PDF isn't helping :( ).

Could someone make a MWE so that I could see how to do that?

  • I almost cried when looking at that XD I didn't get anything : Isn't there some easier way to do that? :\ – dingo_d Oct 23 '11 at 20:05

    Read paragraph `Sets of graphics files' on page 5 of animate.pdf – AlexG Oct 24 '11 at 7:23

Answering the unanswered. Here is the code directly from the manual of animate package as Alexander Grahn pointed out earlier (being the author of the package it seems :). I assume that you images are named image##.jpg where the numbers run from 1 to 23 and you want them to play at the fps rate 10


should do the trick. Please read the manual for further tweaks.

  • This works, I just need to tweak the size of the .eps images :) Thanks ^^ – dingo_d Oct 31 '11 at 8:02
  • Again, look into the manual, in particular, look for resizing options width, height, depth, scale and for cropping options bb, viewport, trim. – AlexG Nov 1 '11 at 8:09
