Animated GIF in PDF
Posted on 2006-11-24
Is it possible to insert an Animated GIF into a PDF and will Acrobat Reader display the animation ?
I understand a printed version of the pdf page would not animate, and that may be a good reason to avoid animations in pdf.
However a lot of my users read my user manuals using Acrobat Reader.
At the moment I generate my user manuals in MS Publisher and print the pdf using PDF Camp.
I've tried inserting an Animate Gif in my MS Publisher files and the generate the PDF with PDF Camp, it prints only the first frame of the animation.
I'm sure PDF Camp does not handle animated GIF files.
If I buy the full version of Acrobat to generate my PDF files will the animation work when viewed in Acrobat Reader ?
