So you are learning first hand why Full Motion Recording (FMR) isn't all that and a bag of chips!
Adobe does offer a FMR editor that may be used with Captivate 3. It's a separate application you have to download and install. You may visit the link below to download it.
The editor is very limited. Basically it works in much the same way as we used to see with old 8MM movies. You can split the film in two or more pieces, append one to the other, discard bits but that's about it. You cannot, however, make edits to the individual frames, for example obliterating sensitive information. I do suppose you might be able to layer an object in that would do it, but you cannot edit directly to accomplish it.
The bottom line is that for most purposes, FMR is best avoided.
Hopefully this helps some... Rick
Fantastic. I will have a look. Thanks so much! Yea...FMR...bleah.
Oops, my bad
Forgot to actually create the link!
And a big ole Homer Simpson D'oh!
Here ya go... Click here
ha ha...thought the links were at the end...no problem.
Thanks for catching it and resending.
Another question re: Recording Modes
This may be a longshot - but wondered if you have to specify all the recording modes you want prior to recording or is there a way to turn a simple cp(Captivate 3)file into a Demonstration, Training, and Assessment after it is created?
It's late where I am so I'm hoping my question is clear.
No, you understand it. You set the mode, then record. There is no magickal button to press that says "Presto! Your Demonstration is now a Simulation!" or vice-versa.
Please note, howeve, that you may record initially in different modes so that you end up with multiple presentations from a single recording. In that case you choose the different modes before you record.
