I have installed Presenter 8 on three computers, one of which has Captivate 6, and have successfully published a presentation that includes a video intro of myself and a simulation of a feature in our learning management system at the University of St. Francis. You can view the presentation at https://usfconnect8.stfrancis.edu/studentstarttopic/.
I think the results are marvelous, but there are issues with Presenter 8 which I think make it problematic for the educational user. I experienced unacceptable lag times in using Adobe Presenter Video Recorder and the simulation tool (which requires Captivate). And I also experienced fails on two computers with various errors, mostly at the point of publishing a video.
I would like to cut to the chase with these recommendations for the product:
It would be nice, too, for Presenter to reintroduce the teleprompter that Adobe Visual Communicator attempted to implement, before that product's demise.
Also desirable would be a built-in simulation solution. It doesn't have to be a full-blown Captivate, but how about something that would accomplish screen captures, much as Captivate 6 now does with the video record-only option?
Thanks for listening,
University of St. Francis
Welcome to Adobe Forums.
Thank you for your helpful sugesstions, I will share them with the concerned team.
That, Vikram, is all I ask. You have made my day!
I wish Adobe had followed through on the installation. Almost 5 months after you wrote, I bought Presenter 8, and it took me 5 hours to install!
