Question: export animations

Subject: export animation ---> beamer / pdf? is in the newer releases "animated gif" still the only option for exporting MAPLE animations? if so, what is the best way of getting this into a beamer (via latex/pdflatex and acroread) presentation -- prefer- rably portable to any machine that has acro-read installed (want to bring the talk on a memory stick, don't bring the laptop -- yet not worry about installed helpers). so far my pdflatex accepts in beamer mp4 movies, and I can convert single frames of gif to pdf, but not animations.
