I will check it out! Scary, the Red Screen of Death!
What about the Blue screen of death!
I had the same problem - the guys at Adobe told me to limit the size of your captivate.cp file to less than 50 meg. I've been doing that now for 6 months - no red screen of death...<grin>
I learned about the 50 meg thing a while back, and try to cut things up.
Also, read somewhere that "full motion" recording is ok on 1 or 2 slides, but anymore, best not to use fullmotion recording. Oh well.
It seems that Captivate is not really suited for large tutorials or e-learning designs. The tutorials we create (where I work) are all quite large in the number of screen shots used to convey the message to the user. I have one tutorial with audio, and 60 slides, that I can still edit, and get to run, but it is quite large (cp file-wise) 115mb. This really a no-no, but since it works I am leaving it alone. I will guess that the cp/slides/script could be broken down to 2 or 3 slide chunks, with some sections (lesson or demo) allowed to have maybe 6 or 7 slides max. then I could propably keep the 50 meg rule per cp. I would then have about (in the case of this app) 10 to 12 cp files to link.
