I am tryring to capture a software demo, there are parts of
this app which I need to focus the user on. I tried using the ZOOM
function but it was just too blurry is there another way of getting
a closer view / demo of a window that appears?
Would it be possible to record the smaller areas at a lower
screen resolution and the rest at a normal resolution and simply
try and put the two videos together?
Indeed that is exactly the approach I normally use. Start
with a smaller sized image, then use the Zoom tool to present the
larger (actual) sized image. You would do this by saving the larger
image as a standard image file. Then when you insert the Zoom area,
you should see a button labeled "Select Image". Click this button
and choose the full sized image. Note that you would probably want
to configure the zoom destination area to be the identical
dimensions of the image you are using. Captivate won't offer any
help with that, other than to list the pixel sizes in properties
