Sometimes an electronic publication is an electronic version of what could become a printed publication.

However, sometimes an electronic publication includes items that cannot be printed and retain their function. For example, some pdfs have one or more active hyperlinks.

I noted with interest some time ago that some pdfs can contain an active 3d virtual object that can be viewed from a reader-chosen angle. It seems that advanced software products are needed to produce such pdfs yet that those pdfs can be displayed and the virtual object rotated as intended by the author of the pdf using Adobe Reader.

Does anyone know if it is possible to have a pdf with an animated gif file within it please?
