Description: Join Dr. Pooja Jaisingh and Vish to learn how to rapidly create eLearning courses with trackable quizzes using the all new Adobe Presenter 8. They will also show you how to convert your slides into interactive training content using out-of-the-box assets such as actors, scenes, layouts, and learning interactions.
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:
Start with a regular CPTX project
Choose Insert -> Recording Slide or click on the Record Additional Slides button (red button) on the top menu. Continue reading…

It’s easy sometimes to feel like your application capture process is going to capture you. Learning to do application capture well can be a considerable challenge. That’s why I wanted to do an eSeminar showing you some of the best application capture examples I have seen. I was thrilled to be able to do this demo to a packed house of well over 200 Adobe Captivate enthusiasts a couple of weeks ago. If you missed it, the recent session on Adobe Captivate and eLearning Suite used to create Application Capture Training (or video capture / screen capture) is now available on demand at the Adobe website.
