I am wanting to do a full motion record of about 5 minutes
into a single slide. I want it to be in a single slide as that will
make it easier to synchronise it with another full motion record
that I want to play back at the same time. Is it possible to make
Captivate full motion record into a single slide/animation and not
have it split out over multiple slides and animations?
Alternatively, once it has split it out, is it possible to
merge slides and/or animations without having to manually copy and
paste an animation from one slide into another?
Unfortunately Captivate doesn't offer a way to record that
will end up resulting in one long full motion clip that resides on
a single slide.
However, the development team did come up with something that
may help you. Hop out and read the article at the link below. It
discusses something called the "Full Motion Recording (FMR)
Editor". This is a utility that allows the Captivate author to
slice, dice, split and join full motion clips. So perhaps using
that beastie you will be able to create that long five minute clip.
