      Adobe Captivate 3: The Definitive Guide, the follow-up to Wordware’s popular Macromedia Captivate: The Definitive Guide, steps you through all the procedures needed to create Flash movies based on any software on your desktop. You’ll learn how to create Flash movies, edit individual screens, add and edit sound, even add interactivity (with or without grading) for complete customization. The expanded e-learning chapter in this edition discusses a variety of ways to build quizzing functions with individual questions and question pools. A chapter on branching shows how to move slide elements on a visual display, and how to create paths through a movie that give each viewer a unique experience. This book covers everything from getting the software installed and activated, manipulating the movie files, adding and editing audio, and building quizzes, all the way to delivery mechanisms of the final output and integrating your movies with other applications.

      * Install and configure Captivate.
      * Create and edit movies.
