I have a document with 8 frames and I want to include it in my beamer as an animated figure, but I'm getting an error of (! Package animate Error: Missing frame number in \animategraphics command.) when I'm using this command

\animategraphics[width=0.5\textwidth , autoplay,loop]{1}{xxx.pdf}{}{}

When I use this command \includegraphics[scale=0.75]{CEOC400036.pdf}, it outputs only one frame.
