Hi, we're working on an elearning/ebook product into which we want to include some practice simulations. (The ebooks are for training on specific software.)
I've successfully created the type of simulations we'd want to build (just a simple one for a test for now) where I record a short "training" in Captivate where it's recording mouse clicks with the popups to warn you if you click in the wrong place.
I want to include this simulation in InDesign for a DPS publication.
I have tried using the Wallaby beta application from the Labs to produce my FLA as HTML5. However, I get a few errors like this:
Unsupported feature: Dynamic Masks are not supported
Mask contains multiple framesets: FrameSet: frames[0,0]
Layer: Bounding Box
Slides (Adobe Captivate)
Symbol: Adobe Captivate Objects
And when I insert the HTML5 produced into InDesign, and run the Preview in Content Viewer, it runs automatically through the screen captures, with no user click input and without the popup tips or warnings I had in Captivate.
Am I doing it wrong, or is this not yet possible in DPS? Is there another way to do it if this way doesn't work?
(PS I literally started learning Captivate this afternoon, please go easy on me!)
Oh, and I should mention, my FLA-to-HTML5 conversion DOES seem to work in my Chrome browser on Mac...so I am thinking it's Adobe Content Viewer that is not handling some of the more advanced aspects of HTML5...
Urg, nevermind, I just rechecked it and it's automatically looping in the browser, not waiting for my click inputs. The tooltip overlays do show up in the browser but not the Content Viewer Preview though.
While you are using Captivate, I'm going to have to say you are really asking in the wrong place. Certainly the question doesn't seem related to Captivate Quizzing features or working with a Learning Management System, so for starters you are in the wrong forum category. But that aside, I do hope you realize that the HTML 5 converter is BETA software. Being that as it is, I'm not sure you are allowed to actually use anything produced by it in a distributable product. Not to mention that because it's in BETA, that could also account for some of the issues you are facing. So from that standpoint, if there is a feedback or beta forum for the HTML 5 converter, you may want to ask there.
Otherwise, this would seem to fall squarely into the InDesign realm. You might try re-posting in the InDesign forums.
Best of luck to you in sorting it... Rick
Have you had any succcess with this? I haven't played around with adding captivate content for DPS yet but It something I want to do. I think we will have to upgrade to cs6 as it has built-in HTML5 output capability.
Love to hear about your progess.
