I am using the animate package to produce a slide deck with beamer and having issues adjusting the framerate. I have experienced the following issues and I suspect that the problem lies with Adobe Reader but I'd like to know if anyone has experienced anything similar:

  • If the pdf slide deck is the only pdf file open in Adobe Reader, then the framerate is slower than what I specified in the source file.

  • If I have another pdf file open, and then I open my slide deck, then the framerate is correct, unless I put the slides in fullscreen mode.

  • If I disable Use 2d graphics acceleration in Adobe Reader, then regardless of anything else, the framerate is slower than what I specified in the source file.

Any suggestions?

    animations in adobe reader can not be expected to hold the frame rate, especially not if the frames are very complicated. Typically you can make it go a few times (making the animation go to the cache) and it will speed up. I know, not ideal, however, it can work. – zeroth Sep 18 '12 at 19:48

    This is not really to do with TeX: it's a 'feature' of PDFs. AS such, it's outside of our scope, sorry. – Joseph Wright Oct 6 '12 at 21:45
