    Recording a demonstration of Captivate

      Hi all,

      I'm using Captivate CS3. Was just wondering how I can use Captivate to record another instance of Captivate in which I'll be demonstrating how to record and use the program. When trying to have two instances of Captivate recording at once I get the error:

      "Another session of Adobe Captivate is currently recording. Please close the other session of Adobe captivate before trying to record."

      I know there is a work around, otherwise how would we have learned from the Captivate tutorials that Adobe/Macromedia has already provided us with? ;)

      If anyone can help me I'd appreciate it.

      Thanks

          I've asked this one before and there's, incredibly, no way to do this properly. I've been advised to import camera-click files, draw red boxes etc. but this would not give anything like a professional result.
          To get round this, I've downloaded a 30-day trial of Camtasia and am using it to record Captivate. Not ideal, but seems to be the only way.
