Your opinion on whether to insert a Captivate 5 swf or copy the slides from the swf's project?

Aug 13, 2012 1:18 PM

I was wondering what peoples opinion is on inserting a Captivate swf or just copy and paste the slides from the project? If I insert a swf the project would be smaller, but sometimes its harder to control the swf (as in playing it inside of a project). If I copy and paste the slides, my project could have over 150 slides. I know that I can break down into small chunks, like one project per procedure, but..


I just would like some other people's opinion on this. I really appreciate any insight you may have ont. Thanks.

    I've not had good luck putting Captivate-published SWF files into a new CP project file... As you say, playback can get crazy, slide completions not marked correctly, timings off...

    If the SWF files I have are not interactive, I convert them to FLV/F4V and import them into the new CP project that way - much more reliable in my experience.

    If they are interactive though, I just past the slides themselves.
