Working with Photoshop Layer Comps in Adobe Captivate

In Adobe Photoshop, you can work with different types of layers like adjustment layers, mask layers, and layer comps. Layer comps allow you to create, manage, and view multiple versions of a layout in a single Photoshop file. This feature comes in really handy when you are creating screen layouts for your eLearning courses. You can save all your course screens as different layer comps and then use it in your Adobe Captivate courses.

Let’s see in this demonstration how to create layer comps and Continue reading…

eLearning Suite & Photoshop CS5 – Getting super clean edges on alpha objects

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…

Captivate Screen Capture on a PowerPoint inside another Captivate Project

I wanted to vlog you guys another video this week since there’s no eSeminar scheduled and I’m out of the office at a conference. 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…

Collaborative authoring using Captivate and PowerPoint

A lot of legacy learning content is in PowerPoint format and it is natural that e-learning course authors want to leverage or re-use this content. The earlier versions of Captivate allowed users to import their PowerPoint content into their Captivate projects. Now Captivate 4 goes much further- Cp4 now supports full round-tripping with the PowerPoint content.
It supports collaborative authoring with the SME’s who use PowerPoint. Detailed below are some key aspects of this powerful feature:

- You can import PowerPoint slides to Captivate, and then enhance these slides by adding audio, animations, video or other Captivate objects to each of the slides. In the meantime your co-author can keep editing the slides using MS PowerPoint. You can synch your Captivate project with the latest version of the PowerPoint slide deck using the ‘update’ feature (Window > Library and select the presentation, right-clik and do “update”) . The Captivate objects which you added earlier on-top of the initial version of the PowerPoint slides remain intact (while Captivate updates to the changes your co-author made using PowerPoint). The workflow becomes even more powerful if you keep this PowerPoint file in a shared location, eliminating the need of sending back the file to Captivate user.

- Note that this feature works for both .ppt and .pptx files. This is being clarified here as I saw many articles describing this as possible only in PowerPoint 2007 (.pptx) files. .ppt and .pptx are handled in the same manner in Captivate 4.

- These posts give some more insight into the feature: PowerPoint Linked vs Embedded Import, Best practices for handling PowerPoint audio in Captivate, Correct dimensions for Power Point Import, PowerPoint On-Click Animations

- Captivate help is also a good resource for the feature.

- This tutorial gives a lot of details.
