Hi there, Janet
I'm confused by your description. Are you saying you have created a Captivate that you are playing back, and recording the Captivate you created using Captivate?
Helpful and Handy Links
Sorry yes I have an e-learning course that I created in Captivate, I'm
now trying to create a Captivate recording of that course, which all
works great other than the roll over captions. Basically its a training
course that we sell, and the demo recording is just a snapshot of the
complete course for demo purposes to clients, we used to have a Camtasia
video but it was really slow and didn't always run.
What I'm actually recording is the published course like I'm a user, so
I'm trying to show how to navigate around the slides, how to use the
various interactions etc. Every other aspect works other than when I
roll my mouse over a roll over caption, although the box comes up on the
screen it doesn't show in the recording. I tried clicking on the box
instead which does then include it in the recording but the mouse path
is too slow so the box appears before I've clicked which is misleading
and looks weird.
Hope that helps, its really hard trying to describe what you're doing,
must make thinks difficult for you guys trying to help, so I really do
appreciate all you do.
Did you try switching manually to Full Motion Recording before the rollover captions? You do not tell which kind of capturing you are using: Automatic or FMR. In case you use the first, try to force manuall FMR at appropriate moments by using the shortcuts F9/F10.
These are the settings I used Sorry I've not tried to do a recording
before so I'm not really sure what does what. Are you saying I should
have full motion selected? Also when do I press F9/F10, do I do that
when I'm rolling over the caption area. Sorry to sound so thick, I'm
really new to all this and have had no training. Many thanks
Sorry to be confusing. No, I would choose Automatic, so that Captivate captures mostly static slides and switches to FMR for drag/drop. But before doing a rollover to show the rollover caption, use F9 to switch over to Full Motion Recording (be sure to set this in the Preferences, Recording, FMR to 32-bit to have better quality) to do a real video recording of that, and afterwards stop FMR to get back to normal capturing using F10.
Wow you're fast, I will give that a go. Thank you so much x

I did not try it out, but let me know if it works, please? Try to avoid answering from your phone, because your coordinates are now public in the thread. You could ask Captiv8r to remove that, I do not have moderator power.
Oops, sorry am replying from work email. I know this is a really stupid
question but how do I reply actually on the forum itself, i can't see a
reply or respond icon anywhere

Aha, that'd do it, thank you so much. I was using a shortcut so although it new it was me online I wasn't logged in. All becomes clear now how embarrassing.
