Please tell me the settings to captivate a 30 second clip.
The audio is recording fine but it just takes a snapshot of the
video and stops there so that snapshot is all I see throughout the
30 seconds of audio. Please help.
Your calling it "Macromedia Captivate" tells me you are using
version 1, no?
Your mention of only seeing a static snapshot also tells me
you are expecting to record in full motion. Am I right?
If so, Captivate is typically a poor choice of applications
to use for recording anything in full motion. There are other
applications more suited to your task. But if you would like to
continue, you may force Captivate to record in full motion by
pressing the F9 key to begin the recording. Then press the F10 key
when you are ready to stop it.
Again, you probably won't be all that happy with how it turns
To expand on the comments of the other expert,
Adobe "Captivate 3.0" is much better at handling full-motion
video than was Macromedia's version 1.0, so perhaps you might
benefit from trying out
version of Captivate, version 3.0.
It will cost you nothing to find out whether Captivate is,
indeed, the tool you are looking for. I would suggest you begin by
watching the built-in tutorials in the right-column of the main
user-interface (UI) to get a good feel for
what Captivate 3 can do, and
how you can do it.
