Macromedia Captivate for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide

Overview

If you've ever used traditional screen recording software to create product demonstrations or created custom simulations on your own, you know what an enormous task it can become. Not so with Macromedia's recently renamed and enhanced software, Macromedia Captivate (formerly RoboDemo). By capturing your actions as you use a program, Captivate eliminates the need to create custom graphics for each step--which in turns means no massive video files at the end of the project.

Overview

If you've ever used traditional screen recording software to create product demonstrations or created custom simulations on your own, you know what an enormous task it can become. Not so with Macromedia's recently renamed and enhanced software, Macromedia Captivate (formerly RoboDemo). By capturing your actions as you use a program, Captivate eliminates the need to create custom graphics for each step--which in turns means no massive video files at the end of the project. Macromedia Captivate automatically records all onscreen actions and instantly creates an interactive Flash simulation. Point and click to add text captions, narration, and e-learning interactions without any programming knowledge. Veteran author Tom Green understands that this is big news for anyone creating online training, product demos, e-learning applications or user support systems--which is why in these pages he provides a super-quick start for a super-quick tool! After introducing you to the Captivate work environment, Tom uses simple task-based instructions and loads of visual aids to help you progress through chapters on creating and modifying Captivate simulations; using frames; adding objects, captions, audio, interactivity, and rich media; using PowerPoint with Captivate; integrating Captivate with Macromedia Breeze; Captivate and Flash; and more.
