I want to animate parts of a beamer presentation. Experiments with
\transduration have been somewhat promising, but since the animation is only for a graphics image on the page with changing time parameter, so I searched on for a better solution than explicitly creating multiple graphics files externally and a corresponding multitude of
\includegraphics in the LaTeX document, one for each point in time.
A search has quickly led to AlexG's answer to “Animations in LaTeX”, which appeals to me because the animation is encapsulated in a single
\multiframe and seems not to require any tools external to LaTeX to generate the animation's frames.
However, I cannot get AlexG's LaTeX code to work like so:
latex alexg.tex dvips alexg.dvi ps2pdf alexg.ps pdfpc alexg.pdf
In fact, I see a media-player like box with some controls below and one thick blue vertical line inside, but nothing happens when I push the controls.
(Also attempts to apply
evince for display have failed. I have also tried
pdflatex for conversion, but this has not worked either and has, moreover, led to problems in unrelated other places when importing postscript graphics.)
