I just received a question from one of my clients. As a filmer and video-editor I do videoproductions all the time but this time the client wants something special. An educational program to check if his workers understand a certain process.
He wants his users to:
I have several questions, beware, I am a compleet noob at this. My expirience stops at PremierePro, Afteraffects, Photoshop, 3dmax and a bit of Dreamweaver. I have worked with Macromedia Director in the past but that is many years ago. I want to try out Captivate or Authorware but need to know what I am getting myself into. Understand that I have yet to buy and install the software.
Many many thanks for your anwsers!
Don't use Authorware for this.
Authorware can easily be used to do this if you have the experience, but it is an extremely expensive and dead product. You would be better using Captivate, or goodness even PowerPoint, rather than using Authorware.
Agreed with Steve. Even a few years ago when Authorware was still viable, I'd probably suggest something else if this would be delivered over the web (if 'local' then, sure, Authorware would have been perfect).
Captivate could do this, or Powerpoint with the addition of Articulate Presenter or Adobe Presenter would also be a suitable, not-terribly expensive, tool.
