Hello all, I'm a native Flash Developer, and would like to
start creating some tutorials. I bought Captivate 3, and now have a
question. I have a large monitor, and capturing the entire thing
isn't a smart idea. I'm wondering if there is a way to set a
capture size, however, when the mouse leaves that capture size, it
pans with with mouse... Basically following the mouse around the
screen so the end user can see what is going on... Thanks for your
help in advance, this seems to be a very nice product.
Unfortunately Captivate does not offer such a recording mode.
I do believe that is something Camtasia 5 and maybe Jing offers.
Hopefully we will see something similar in a future version.
One way you might accomplish something similar using
Captivate would be to configure your recording size as desired.
Then record different segments, with each segment covering one
quadrant of the application. You could then start each segment off
by having a capture of the full screen that you shrink to fit the
recording size of the segment. Then perhaps use a zoom area to
"blow up" the quadrant being talked about.
