Having installed captivate 2 -the application works fine
until I try to record my desktop or an application. I have checked
my setting rigourously and tested on different machines but face
the same problem. When I hit record, I hear the shutter. I think
click and move about for a bit, end the recording and when I go to
see what was captured its always the same thing. the initial image
at the start and that's it. Nothing else is captured - mouse, key
board, screen changes etc. I have tried capturing full screen / app
specific (not just browser). Changed settings to real time/ track
mouse etc etc to no avail.
I am a bit confused by your post since I am not at all sure
what you mean by "think click". It sounds like you are expecting
Captivate to record in real time from the moment you open it.
Unlike some of the other similar software available, Captivate does
not record real time on-screen action...at least not as it's
standard recording method. Captivate takes an initial screen shot,
but from then on is event driven and will wait for you to click the
mouse before taking another screen shot. It does have a real time
recording method known as Full Motion Recording (FMR) but that only
comes into play if you have it set to kick on for scrolling actions
and the like or if you use F9 to manually start/F10 to stop.
