      Thanks Selahebiz – I love using this thing. It’s totally amazing how easy it is to create content with it. Here’s a link to a video created with Adobe Presenter Video Creator.

      Thakns Selahebiz, glad you like it.

    This looks really cool! I hope this version of Presenter will be available on the Mac as well!!

    • By Allen Partridge - 8:36 AM on July 8, 2012  

      Damien, as I understand it, PowerPoint for Mac has no plugin architecture – therefore there can’t be any plugins. It’s of course possible that this may change in time, but at this point Presenter (which is of course a PowerPoint plugin ribbon) is PC only. I’d love it if the architecture came along to enable something like this.

      • By Damien Bruyndonckx - 1:21 PM on July 8, 2012  

        Hi Allen. Thanks for your reply.

        I understand that Presenter is a PowerPoint plug in. Actually ,I’ve been using is in my windows pc days ( i event taught a Presenter class). What I don’t understant is why the feature showcased in the video need to be plugged-in to Power Point. Can’t it be yet another standalone app used to capture on-screen action and blend it with a video stream comming from a webcam?

        Thnanks for your answer and have a tood WE

    Looks amazing! +1 hoping it will be available for Mac as well.

    Just a heads up, the Tweet button on this page is generating tweets that are too long, so they need to be truncated manually! 🙂

    • By Allen Partridge - 8:36 AM on July 8, 2012  

      Thanks Jeff – I’ll see if we can get that fixed.

  • By Anthony Silvey - 10:39 PM on July 7, 2012  

    Great show…looking forward to using this feature!

    • By Allen Partridge - 8:37 AM on July 8, 2012  

      Thanks Anthony – it’s just fantastic and shockingly fast. I’m thrilled to see what others will do with this feature.

  • By GilbertMizrahi - 11:15 PM on July 7, 2012  

    Is this tool be part of Adobe Cloud offering? (not the whole elearning suite or Captivate, just Presenter Video Creator).

    • By Allen Partridge - 8:38 AM on July 8, 2012  

      Gilbert, we haven’t said yet how this tool will be offered, other than that it’s part of Adobe Presenter 8, which traditionally has been available either as a stand alone, or as part of the Adobe eLearning Suite. We haven’t announced subscription options for Presenter or Adobe eLearning Suite 6 yet.

  • By Xiaoqiao - 12:16 AM on July 8, 2012  

    It is really mind-blowing with its newly integrated functions! Great video with clear instrucitons. The user-friendly interface is amazing and easy customization is a ‘bonus plus’. Thanks! 🙂

    • By Allen Partridge - 8:39 AM on July 8, 2012  


      It does stand to make video creation so simple anyone can do it from their desk.

  • By Wong Lee - 12:18 AM on July 8, 2012  

    Super cool video with appealing explanation! Look forward to making these new features in effect. Thank you!

    • By Allen Partridge - 8:40 AM on July 8, 2012  

      Thanks Wong – You’re going to love it! We’ve all been amazed by how easy it is to use and how great the videos look.

  • By Walter Dee - 12:20 AM on July 8, 2012  

    Amazing video with great content! Want to try immediately and see what differences it can make. Thanks

    • By Allen Partridge - 8:42 AM on July 8, 2012  

      Thanks Walter – Adobe Presenter Video Creator is expected to be available soon – keep an eye here on the Adobe Captivate / Rapid eLearning Blog or join our group on facebook http://www.facebook.com/adobecaptivate/ to be sure you’ll hear about the release of Adobe Presenter 8.

  • By Philip Roy - 5:05 AM on July 8, 2012  

    I’m really excited by the video!! The title of the product interests me….whether Adobe Presenter Video Creator is a separate app or part of Presenter 8…or if this is a replacement to Presenter, losing it’s focus on being integrated with PowerPoint? I’m hoping a separate app?

    I recently wrote an article suggesting Adobe needed a very easy to use screen capture tool, which I called Adobe Captivate Elements (you can read about it here http://bit.ly/I1bIkD) and in essence what you’ve shown is exactly the sort of thing that was needed, so I’m over the moon. It really has a nice and easy to use interface.

    Having been giving the opportunity to beta test previous versions of Presenter (but not this version sadly) I’m also really pleased to see lower thirds added….something I know I had requested as a feature over the past few years.

    Great stuff !!

    Fantastic video with fantastic content!!

  • By Dave K - 2:13 AM on July 10, 2012  

    This is an awsome product..

    Did I make a mistake? I purchased Captivate 6 the day it was released. I would really prefer the Elearning Suite 6. Can credit be given for the CP6???

    This is going to rock. I can’t wait to start using it. I’m already an eLearning Suite subscriber and I presume I can get this via an upgrade? I have also tried out the Captivate 6 on a trial basis – awesome work folks. I’m excited to see it all in action on the new Adobe Connect setup as well. Cheers!

  • By Pooja Gupta - 2:05 PM on July 10, 2012  

    Awesome video Dr. Allen….

  • By Michael Spain - 6:47 PM on July 10, 2012  

    Allan, How soon do you think the eLearning Suite 6 will be announced/available? Am really looking forward to the presenter update, as well as the many changes in Captivate 6.

    • By Doug - 4:33 AM on July 20, 2012  

      Found the Solution
      You have to uninstall Presenter 7 first then reboot & retry
      Also have to run the install exe on resources CD for presenter Assets

  • By Jacuna - 9:22 PM on July 19, 2012  

    The videos show several options in branding for opening and closing videos. My download came with only 2 (blue and white ink). How do I get the other ones?

    • By MUKUL - 9:17 AM on July 20, 2012  

      Hi Jacuna,
      To download more branding videos and other cool assets, click on the “More Themes” option which you get in the branding dropdown menu.
      Open your Video creator project, go to “Branding” panel > click on “Themes” dropdown and look for “More Themes”. An installer consisting of lots of assets will be downloaded. Install it by double clicking the “set-up.exe”.

      That’s it. You will now have cool new assets to work with..


  • By Dougcremer - 11:08 PM on July 24, 2012  

    Look amazing!! In fact, probably a must have!!

  • By KeithCoxRealtor - 10:09 PM on October 3, 2012  

    Will it be part of the adobe cloud suite? I’d love to put it into action.
