The new #AdobeCaptivate Upgrade Plan- exclusive access to feature updates

The new subscription plan that we introduced has been received with a lot of enthusiasm, and has been heralded as a possible game changer in our eLearning industry. One of the key drivers for this pricing model was that- in today’s environment, technology and market changes happen way too rapidly for customers to be satisfied with an 18 month release cycle. Going forward, Captivate, Presenter and eLearning Suite will have much more frequent releases. With this in perspective, the subscription pricing model makes it possible for our customers to stay on the latest versions and leverage the new features and enhancements, without requiring a new purchase decision.

While the subscription pricing model suits many of our retail customers, Captivate is also hugely popular among large enterprises, government and educational institutions. Procurement policies in these segments prevent many of them from adopting a subscription plan. To help this group adopt and transition to a phase where our products will see frequent updates, we’ve enhanced our Upgrade Plan offering.

The Adobe Upgrade Plan ensures that you are always using the latest Adobe technology without straining your software budgets or administrative resources. This program offers your organization immediate access to all product upgrades for the length of your coverage period. For example, at $US 135 in the US, a one-year Upgrade-plan membership is priced at 15% of the full-product price and provides you access to all Adobe Captivate upgrades (including major releases) that occur during this period. A terrific value since non-members may pay up to 60% of the full-product price for an upgrade.

Going forward, while the bug fix updates/ patches will be offered to all customers automatically, feature updates and enhancements made between major releases will be offered exclusively to customers on either the Upgrade Plan or Subscription.

More details on the Adobe Upgrade Plan can be found here.

Be it the screen title, answer options for quiz questions, or a button for that matter, text effects are pretty easy to apply. What’s more? There are presets available that readily suit your theme so that you don’t have to worry about getting the right look for a theme you are using.

HD Videos within a regular Adobe Captivate project

Adobe Captivate 6 lets you record your screen or applications as High Definition (HD) videos and then add transitions or pan & zoom effects to make the videos more engaging. You can also publish them directly to YouTube or save them as MP4 files.

But what If you want to have questions slides or training slides? What if you require reporting to LMS? This is when you need to combine the videos with a regular Adobe Captivate project (CPTX files).

One way of combining videos and Captivate projects is by recording a Video Demo, doing all the required changes, publishing it, and then inserting the published video in the project as a Slide Video.
The disadvantage in this way, however, is, even if you need slight modifications to the video, you need to rerecord, republish, and then reinsert the modified video in the project…  This can be time-consuming especially if your video is lengthy.

So, the best way to combine video demos with for such cases is to record the demo from within the CPTX file. The video will be inserted on a separate slide and you can start editing the video with a single click.

Here’s how we do that:

  1. Start with a regular CPTX project
  2. Choose Insert -> Recording Slide or click on the Record Additional Slides button (red button) on the top menu.
