I use Latex to make PDF's where graphics output of plots
and Manipulate and other Mathematica commands are embedded
inside PDF as animation with live controls in the
PDF file to play/stop/step the animations in the PDF file.

So I thought to document the steps in case someone might find it useful.

It is simple method to use, and uses pdflatex and the nice animate package
that comes with Latexto create the PDF file. I use TexLive, but MikeTex
Latex should also work.

It is possible ofcourse to embed animated gif and other movies
into a PDF directly, but the above method allows one to have
live controls to actually play the animation and control its speed,
step through it, etc... while in the PDF file.  The above
link contains 2 small pdf's with Mathematica animation in them
to try them.
