Starred version of \includegraphics

created an issue


I've been trying to include PDF graphics into my Beamer presentation using the starred version of {{{\includegraphics}}}. The reason is that I want to clip the picture and reveal it piece by piece. I can do it using the viewport and clip options of {{{\includegraphics}}}, but unfortunately, the image's position changes from one slide to the next. According to a graphicx tutorial, that's what the starred version of \includegraphics is supposed to fix (see, e.g., the "Cropping" section of http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Wiki/index.php/LaTeX:Pictures). Unfortunately, this is what Beamer tells me when I try to use {{{\includegraphics}}} : {{{ ! LaTeX Error: File `' not found. }}} I've seen a couple of discussions about this on the web, with no clear solution. For instance: http://www.tug.org/pipermail/macostex-archives/2009-January/038682.html

I'm using version 3.10 of Beamer (rcs-revision a6b1a8434d30) under OSX 10.6.8 from the 2011 TeXLive distribution.

Somehow I'm not able to determine if this issue has since been fixed or if there's a workaround.

    The * option for \includegraphics is simply a short-cut for the clip key. That said, it should really be supported. Unfortunately, the way that beamer currently sets up optional arguments makes handling this a bit tricky.
