I don't believe any avenue exists to directly export from PP to Captivate. Likely you need to render the video as an MP4, then in Captivate, choose to use the resulting MP4 as either an event video or a multi slide synchronized video.
At the time you select the MP4 (or whatever format was used) Captivate should try and launch the Adobe Media Encoder to transcode into FLV format.
Yeah, it's bizarre that you would have to go at it this way, but to the best of my knowledge, this is how it works!
Unfortunately, none of that works. If anyone has successfully exported a video from Premier Pro CC timeline and imported the same video into Captivate CC and been able to play it there, please reply...
Can you outline the steps you followed?
Just saying "it doesn't work" doesn't give anyone much to go on. Where exactly do things fail for you?
The basic steps we're trying to do are as follows:
- Edit a video in Premiere Pro CC
- Export the edited video to a standalone video file that will be recognized by Captivate 8.
- Insert the video from the previous step to a Captivate 8 slide, and have it play back in the Captivate-generated output.
Captivate 8 seems to really want FLV files, but Premiere Pro CC and the latest Media Encoder don't support this output format. We've tried MP4, WMV, and one other format out of Premiere CC, and none of those pulled into Captivate 8 successfully. Sounds like the next step may be to download an old version of the Media Encoder and see if that helps, as recommended elsewhere.
Captivate is supposed to work with video files. And one might think it should allow working with stuff the CC apps create. I might suggest you file a bug with Adobe. Sometimes when you do this the development team will come back to you with a workaround.
