Hi Renee and welcome to our community
As you have seen, Captivate doesn't record natively in full-motion mode. What it does is take occasional screen captures, combines them with mouse movement and voilà, you have what appears to be a full motion movie. However, it does do a limited amount of full motion. Things that are very brief, such as dragging a window from one place to another. Clicking and dragging to select something. Or possibly clicking and dragging the thumb of a scroll bar.
If these animations exist as Flash movies or .AVI files, you may insert them into your slides as animation objects. Maybe that will help?
I'm not sure if I can get the file out of the application, but that is a good idea, I'll give it a try.
There aren't any third-party plug-ins or anything that will help it work? This seems like the ideal solution for creating demos of our software, but there's some on-screen animation that we definately need to include and it seems like a lot of extra effort to insert them as animation objects.
Also, if the animation is mid-screen, will the mouse still appear to pass over them on the way to something else?
