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.

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…

I’ve always been fascinated by learning, but there is one phenomenon in learning which I find particularly Continue reading…
People often ask me how I got such a clean cutout of an image in Adobe Captivate 5. The answer is that it’s pretty easy with eLearning Suite 2, because Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Captivate 5 work together to make for a simple solution to complex problems like that one. Sure, it’s easy to get a clean selection when all the background pixels are the same color, but what do you do when you need to clip a foreground object or figure and the subject and the background are far more complex? In the video below I Continue reading…

So I’ve recorded this short Continue reading…

This fun little tidbit is in response to one of the more common questions I get from Adobe Captivate users. The question? Now that Presenter (doesn’t matter which Presenter) doesn’t support embedded Adobe Captivate 5 files (because Presenter hasn’t been updated to AS3) how can I embed Captivate Video Captures, Application Captures, Application Simulations etc. onto my PowerPoints? My answer is generally … You know there is an easier way?
This 5 minute video demonstrates the easier Path. A lot of users don’t realize a.) how very simple it is to use PowerPoint files inside Adobe Captivate 5, and b.) how simple it is to embed Continue reading…
