    Pointing and recording audio simultaneously


      I create "lectures" by basically importing PowerPoint slides into Captivate and then recording audio.

      I would like to point (with the cursor, for example, or even highlight) specific words, equations or regions in the slide while I am recording the audio. I know I can first record audio and then include all types of effects (edit) later on, but that takes more time. Is it possible to "save" cursor movements while recording audio with Captivate? I do not want to use a screencasting software for doing that because of the larger file size it would generate.

          No, as far as I know it isn't possible to accomplish what you are wanting. Not if you simply imported the PowerPoint and went from there. You might try this approach if you are using Captivate 3. Set PowerPoint up to play in a window and adjust the size to what you wish to see in Captivate. Then launch Captivate and record using the full motion option. The full motion option was improved in Captivate 3 so as to accommodate longer recordings.
