Animated PDF Files
Many people are not familiar with animated PDF documents, though they have actually been around for
- An animated PDF file is a standard PDF file, that is viewable with standard PDF viewers,
include Adobe's free Acrobat viewer.
- These files can contain 3D, interactive, animated content. You can rotate, zoom, and print
- Clear Motion ODS generates these files (as well as other animation formats). They can
be emailed, embedded in reports, etc.
- You can easily share interactive, animated results of ODS measurements with anyone.
All they need is the standard Adobe PDF viewer!
Animated WMV Files
Windows Media Video (WMV) files, with high-quality, small size animation files. Unlike the Animated PDF files,
they are not interactive and cannot be rotated, zoomed, etc. However, they can be viewed in Windows without
installing any other software.
Below are some examples of animated PDF and WMV files generated by Clear Motion ODS.
Note that the PDF files should generally be downloaded to your computer, then opened in Adobe Acrobat (or
Acrobat Reader) to view them. The default Windows 10 PDF reader does not display 3D PDF files correctly, so
you may need to download the free Acrobat Reader to view these PDF files.
