    User System requirements

    Xeon64 Level 1

      I was wondering if there are any general system requirements for viewing an exported capitvate project? I need to give this to our customers as a guidline so they have some Idea of what they will need to run the modules.

       

      My module is 750 x 540, 110 slides, and has a lot of animation and video. All of the imported video is in .flv format and the animation is using AC2.

          Hello,

           

          How will you publish: SWF or EXE or PDF?

            Exe. at first then possibly moving on to swf format and Acrobat Connect Pro. The exe files are my biggest concern right now at this stage. I have tried it on a Pentium 4 2.8 ghz with 2 GB of Ram and it too a very long time to load and certain elements did not play right.

              Hi again,

               

              110 slides, with a lot of video and audio, is really pushing CP very far. What is the resulting file size of the published file? Recommended in this case (because of video-audio) is 50-60 slides. Do know that daisy-chaining is not very well working with EXE, so that is not an alternative. Just an idea, because I'm using that sometimes when I'm expecting problems with systems: is it not possible to publish to PDF (publish to SWF and choose Export PDF)? Quality is very nice in PDF.

                The resulting file size is 111mb. I am pushing Captivate. The PDF method seemed to run smoother but used more Ram than running the exe version. I can see now that I am goign to have to try various types of exports and video compression methods to get this to work. We may just endup supplying our customers with a computer so we know what works and what doesn't. Thanks for the help.
