Using Captivate 6. Can I edit the mouse movement for video capture? I see a can change the mouse pointer and smooth the movement.
My problem is that when I trim the video, the speed of the mouse pointer slows to a crawl in some parts of the video. Can I move or adjust the mouse timing or speed.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to a better workflow?
Thanks in advance, Marc
Welcome to Adobe Forums.
When you select the mouse pointer, under properties inspector (Right Hand side), you can change the timing of mouse pointer (To adjust the time and speed)
Hope this helps !!
I think that Kurrykid is talking about the new Video capture in Captivate 6. And AFAIK there is no way to change the mouse speed for a captured mouse movement, would like to know also if that is possible. Mostly when the mouse is crawling too slow, I will hide the mouse and just show the Mouse click at the end with a proper setting.
If you have done a Video Demo in Captivate 6 , then you can't change the Speed and timing for a mouse movement.
In Software Simulation you can change Speed and timing for a mouse movement, as it comes as an object in timeline.
Thanks everyone for your responses.
After experimenting a bit, I found you can control (kind of) the mouse speed by adding or removing a mouse object from the timeline. So in my case where the pointer was going to slow, I added a mouse pointer a few seconds before the pointer I needed to speed up. (Lilybiri perhaps you can experiment and confirm).
Note: this tip applies to Video Demo mode in Captivate 6.
Tip - If you want the mouse to move faster, make sure you choose the setting, "display for specific time" NOT "display for rest of slide."
If I chose "display for rest of slide" and didn't give the mouse enough time to move, it would stop halfway across the screen.
