    Capturing video in Captivate

      We develop video editors and I need to create some (a lot) of courseware for our products. I was told that Captivate can capture a video that is playing on the screen. So far, I haven't been able to that. I have a trial version and need to know if Captivate can ACTUALLY capture video.
      Can anyone help me out?

          If you mean capture "video" as in dynamically moving images, yes Captivate can do that, but you might be happier with a tool that is specifically designed for the purpose of creating AVIs from moving content. Captivate 3 does a good job on short (10 seconds) video captures, though.

          Try that out by beginning a recording, then when you wish to capture an action, press the function key F9 to begin "full-motion" capture. Press the function key F10 to stop your full-motion recording, and continue the recording normally. There is also an option to record the whole recording in full-motion. Be aware that your file size is likely going to be large, if you are capturing a lengthy dynamic activity. Good luck!
