Can we make presentations on LaTeX?

The LaTeX package commonly used for creating presentation is called beamer , and for more information on how to get started you might find part 3 of our free online LaTeX course useful.

Which command would you use to create presentation in LaTeX?

To start our presentation we need to set the document class to beamer . Next we’ll select a theme using the setheme command; for our example we’ll use the Boadilla theme. Just like any other LaTeX document we need to enclose our document in the document environment.

Should I use beamer or Powerpoint?

If you need a lot of math, please use beamer. If you have Images and you need to make some order on the space you have on each slide, I think PPT is more powerful. The reason is that it often happens that your images on the slide are quite larger than you expected and you need to resize them.

How do we implement animations using LaTeX?

The animate package uses individual images and combines them into the animation in the pdf. If you are starting out with an already animated graphic file (e.g. some animated gif) that you want to include in your LaTeX document, you will first need to convert it into individual images.

How do I create a LaTeX document?

Generally, you will go through a series of steps for each document.

  1. Write text with LaTeX markup code in text editor -> produces ‘paper.tex’
  2. Run ‘latex’ on this source -> produces ‘paper.dvi’
  3. Preview ‘paper.dvi’ in a special viewer.
  4. Edit your paper, go back to step 1.

Is beamer better than PPT?

(Of the two, beamer is generally more powerful, but doesn’t support BibTeX, which powerdot does.) Otherwise, PowerPoint is a much better option. It is much more user-friendly, and actually has better presentation capabilities than either LaTeX package.

Can I put GIF in LaTeX?

A GIF in beamer can be inserted by splitting it to images and then animate them using the command \animategraphics . \animategraphics command requires loading animate package. It accepts options like displaying images in a loop, set control buttons and set the delay between images.
