Recommended cameras are mentioned here -> http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/presenter/using/record-video-presentations.html#rec ommended_cameras_and_microphones
We haven't done sufficient test with handycams/live camera, so we don't recommend it, though you can test it if you already have a camcorder and firewire port in your system. In that setup, you will need DVdriver from this link -> http://www.trackercam.com/TCamWeb/download.htm
But again, this is not recommended. If you're buying a new camera to record using presenter, then buy one from the recommended list.
Please follow this checklist before recording any video with Adobe Presenter Video Creator :-
- Are your video card driver is up to date? Please check whether you have the latest driver from the manufacturer’s site.
- Are all unnecessary applications closed?
- Do you have sufficient free space on your hard disk? At least 5 GB is needed, but around 15 GB is recommended.
- Are your webcam drivers up to date? It is recommended to install the webcam driver from the webcam cd or the webcam company’s site.
- Are you capturing your video in a well-lit environment? Most webcams perform poorly in bad lighting.
The Connect Support team also recently posted this. It does call out a few camera/video options that are known to have issues, rather than a list of those that work, but it gives good info about what to look for in a camera as well: http://blogs.adobe.com/connectsupport/adobe-connect-supported-cameras-and-mic/
Adobe presenter recognizes my FireWire cams. However, despite setting the output in DVDriver to 720x480, presenter displays the output as 360x240. Anyone have a solution.
