Captivate simply couldn't handle the complicated drag and drop motion capture while trying to capture the whole screen. This then involves "grafting" the animation back onto the slide you wanted it on originally. But at least it works. Fiddling with the transparency helps, too.
I also have a very high resolution screen, and I wonder if that contributed.
