Welcome to our community, Dr. Pruiett
Yes, PowerPoint normally likes to take over all the screen. But one approach you may take is to tell it you really want to play it back in a window. I think there is a Slide Show menu that has a "Set Up Show" option. You choose that and you are able to cause PP to play back in a window that you may resize as desired.
Have you tried that?
Is there a way for me to capture it in full screen and then have Captivate shrink it down to my desire size?
That's certainly among the possibilities here. To do that, you click Project > Resize project and make it smaller.
However, as with most things in this realm, a trade off is involved. The quality of the movie will deteriorate somewhat. To what degree depends on a couple of factors.
* How much you are resizing
* What your own tolerance level is for acceptable quality
Hopefully that helps... Rick
My suggestion would be to create a blank Captivate movie 705,529, and then using Captivate's import PowerPoint feature. You'll end up with a movie at the exact size you want. The new Captivate movie will bea series of slides - 1 for each of your PowerPoint slides. You can then use Captivate's audio recording features to add audio to each slide. This way you don't have to get the who audio presentation 100% correct - you can do it a slide at a time and re-record/edit at your own pace.
