Hi Sam and welcome to our community
As far as I am aware RoboHelp will not let me link to the videos directly because they cannot be part of the project.
I'm assuming that you are referring to the ability to just create a hyperlink that points generically to the .SWF? If I'm correct, of course you can. You just need to add the .SWF to the RoboHelp Baggage Files area.
Does the way in which captivate exports the videos effect their ability to scale?
The answer to this is a definite "Yes and No". When you publish a Captivate movie, you also normally publish an associated HTML file. The HTML file is intended to be placed in the same general folder. Its purpose is to ensure your movie is presented to your user at the same size you determined when you created it. This is because everything inside a Captivate movie is bitmapped images. And when you resize bitmapped images, the quality normally begins to suffer.
Hopefully this helps... Rick
Firstly, many thanks for your swift reply, It has been very helpful.
I had tried making a hyperlink directly to the swf but must have not included them in the robohelp baggage files area. I now seem to have a useable solution. YAY. I will not be able to keep my headers and footers but that is not a massive problem. It just requires me to go through the 500 topics and change all of the hyperlinks so that they link directly to the swf instead of the html file! I don't suppose you know if robohelp has any built in batch operations or a way in which i could script this?
I know that changing the scale of the SWFs will reduce the quality, but it is a choice between it scaling and being slightly lower quality, and, the resolution of the video being too big for the resolution of the screen viewing it. I think I prefer it fitting on screen, although I have spoken to people with the opposite opinion.
