‘Record Application with Adobe Captivate‘ is a new feature in Flash CS5, which provides the functionality of capturing the screen with the capabilities of Adobe Captivate and getting all the content in Flash CS5, without leaving Flash CS5 at all. To capture from Flash, go to Commands Menu and choose ‘Record Application’. If Adobe Captivate is already running, it will immediately show the recording dialog. If Adobe Captivate is not running, then it will be launched in head-less mode (This is a light weight mode, to make the application launch quicker). Once Adobe Captivate recording dialog is shown, you can choose all the recording options you want and start recording. For each recording mode namely Demo, Assessment, Simulation and Training, a FLA file is generated. You can opt to choose only the required recording modes. Once the recording is completed, a dialog will pop up asking the location to save the FLA files. Once you are through with this step, the project will be exported to Flash and the FLA files will be opened in Flash. All the objects generated during the Capture including narration audio, Auto FMRs will be exported. So, simply saying, you can capture, edit and publish your content without even leaving Flash.
For this feature to work, you need to have ELS 2.0 with Adobe Captivate installed.
