My primary question is that is it possible to make animated objects on LaTeX and what programs do you have to use if this is actually possible?

    There are several options. 1. The animate package. 2. beamer allows you to animate. 3. The latest tikz version has animation facilities. 4. You can use convert to create animated gifs. 5. You can create mp4 files. – user121799 Jan 27 at 2:33

Some of the options that I am aware of (not an exhaustive list):

  1. The animate package allows you to produce animations.
  2. beamer allows you to animate stuff.
  3. The latest tikz/pgf version has animation facilities. See the answers of this question for details.
  4. You can use convert to create animated gifs. Many of the animated gifs that you can find on this site are produced that way.
  5. You can create mp4 files. This is particularly useful if you want to produce "movies" like this one. Unfortunately, one cannot upload mp4 files here AFAIK.
