i see the log file now is a DISTILLER log file -- so you seemed to have
had no problems with the latex run and dvips and distiller!!!
Next step is done!!!
Now open your Acrobat and do the shortcut Ctrl+J (this is the shortcut
for WINDOWS, look up for the adequate shortcut for a MAC) to open the
Now copy and paste the following line into the last line within the JS
If you pasted the above line do an ENTER on your NUMERIC KEYPAD -- Not
folder within Acrobat -- on my system it is:
Into the similar folder on your system, copy the following files:
(1) aeb.js -- you will find it in the AcroTeX basic package
(2) aeb_pro.js -- you will find it in the Aeb_pro package
If this is done, you installed the two packages completely.
What you always need to do when using aeb_pro:
When the PDF is produced by distiller you have to do a "save as" of the
WITHIN THE PDF you generated. This can be done automatically in a next step.
Give me a sign, when you copied the two *.js files into the correct
folder of your Acrobat.
Now when this is done recompile your file to PDF, do a "save as" and
check if the animation runs.
Maybe you noticed Alexander Grahn's "animate.sty" package. This is a
wonderful method to generate PDF animations as the name of the package
aeb_pro wasn't made for animations at all -- it was a package allowing
to use OCGs (PDF layers) and a JS made it possible to so generate some
animate.sty doesn't use OCGs -- it uses form fields which allow
wonderful frame rates (fast animations).
Comparing the resulting file size of the produced animat2.pdf with the
two different methods i get:
with animate.sty = 715 kB (no Acrobat needed)
with aeb_pro.sty = 478 kB (Acrobat needed)
It is up to you which method you like to use.
Hope this will help.
