Hi there,

I am in the process of putting together a presentation PDF that requires two gifs to be embedded on some pages.

I'm wondering if this is something that can be created with an interactive PDF?

I have embedded MP4s and MP3s in the past but can't seem to apply animated Gifs.

Is anyone here able to help me?

 

Thank you!

Patti

Take a look at this example file. If it does what you want, I'll share the technique.

Hi Joel,

 

thanks for sharing the example – I’m also looking for a way to integrate a small animation (animated GIF style) into a PDF. Can you please share the technique?

 

Best regards,

Till.

One additional question: could you also make the animation auto-run when opening the file (not having to click to start it)?

PDF files do not support animated gifs. They do support videos in mp4 format, or you can display the animation one frame at a time as the icon of a button field, like in @Joel_Geraci 's neat sample file from above. The latter is a nice solution if you have a limited amount of frames, and it can be set to run automatically when the file is opened. It does require more work setting up, though.

Hi, I posted in another thread asking pretty much this question, found here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/i-want-to-create-a-pdf-resume-with-gifs-looping-v...

Please I would love if you shared the technique of how you accomplished this. Thank YOU!
