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…
