The technical support person for captivate said that there is a way to record the live video with captivate, I just need to find a way to remove the overlaying application that prevents it. Is this true, or do did I just waste $700 on a software that wont do what I need it to?

Hmmm, well I'm aware that Captivate can do Full Motion recording. Normally you tap the F9 key to start it and F10 to stop. But I've never known it to work anything near what I would call flawlessly. The end result is nearly always less than satisfactory.
Captivate is a terrific product for what it does. Unfortunately, Full Motion capture has never been its strong point.

Often you flat cannot record playing video - you might capture a black
rectangle instead of the video you want. This is dependant upon how the
video is playing, as often the video plays played on a special overlay that
is 'above' everything else in the window (super-simplification!!).
When you can capture the video, you will rarely get a high-quality capture
as doing so is very processor intensive. And if your video is streaming, you
are asking a lot of your computer to complete all the tasks required to
download, decode, display and then capture and resave the video. Captivate
is really not a tool designed for this. People seem to have better luck with
