I know that Captivate 2 embeds all flash animation files
(.swf and .flv), used in a presentation as one .swf, but Captivate
3 publishes them all seperate. My question is will RoboHelp 6 play
these presentations correctly if they are not embedded into one
And if not does anyone know how they could be?
We are considering these products to make our companies help
file more interactive and use a lot of video demos. So any info on
this issue woud be greatly appreciated.
Actually, Captivate 2 also keeps the .SWFs as separate files.
But it depends on the target of the Flash player when you publish.
If you use Flash player 6 (and I think this is the default in
version 2, so you have to explicitly change it if you want output
for 7 or 8) this is why they are kept all in one file.
You should be fine as long as you make sure to include the
referenced .SWF files to your Baggage files folder in RoboHelp. The
thing is, RoboHelp has no way of knowing that those files are
needed, because an internal call inside the main .SWF references
I do have a document that might help further this explanation
a bit. You may view it by
