Urgent question: can’t find the Video publishing option…

Hello all,

I have to finalize my demo project and publish it as a stand alone video (mp4?) and I can0t find the option in the publishing list of values?

I only have the HTMLS5/SWF option in the list! Are there some presets that I am not aware of to access the video publishing?

Please help!! it’s quite urgent, thanks a lot!

Audio Error: You have reached the minimum time for slide 2

I have imported an audio file that i need to break up across my slides.  I am trying to drag the marker for slide three to the 19 second mark, but receive an error “You have reached the minimum time for slide 2” and it will not let me drag it in.  Slide 2 has only 3 seconds assigned to it and this drag would make it about an 8 second slide…..why is it not letting me drag the markers in?  Thank you.

Help! Text Captions in Captivate not capturing name of what I am clicking on

I am a new Captivate user and I am trying to record a software simulation of our software, which is web based.  As i navigate through the clicks, my text caption boxes insert, but Captivate does not capture the name of what I am clicking on.  Instead of inserting a text caption that says “Click File”, it will say “Click”.  I manually have to go in and add the text to each text caption and resize the box.  This is not scalable for the amount of recording i have to do.  Any idea why this is not working?  For example, I would expect the text caption box below to read “Select Dispatch” but it only says “Select”.  To troubleshoot, i recorded a demo in Word and all text boxes behave as I would expect….they say Select+the name of what menu item I am clicking.  Help!  I have a HUGE project I need to get done ASAP.  Thanks!

Quality of Videodemos

Hi all,

I’m recently working with Captivate and tried recording some videodemos but I was a little bit disappointed about the quality. So I tried to improve the quality by looking at the presettings and the settings for publishing. All I could find for videodemos in the presettings was the Video Color Mode. In the publishing settings I experimented with the settings but the results were still unsatisfying. Is there any chance to improve the quality of videodemos while recording?

Captivate Mac 2019 crashes recording a video demo

New to Captivate, just downloaded trial. Trying to record a video demo (talking head to overlay on a presentation). Seems like I’m on track, but as soon as I start to record, captivate freezes or quits. Every time. Mac running 10.14.2 with 16 gig ram and at least 30 gig hd space. captivate 11.0.1.266. Any ideas? I want to like this, there must be a fix…

Can you upload a video to YouTube with the TOC feature using Captivate?

We’d like to start creating our videos and include TOC. I see that this can definitely be done in Captivate, but what I can’t seem to find out is if once you’ve created a project using Captivate, can you upload the output file to YouTube and still have the TOC show and work?

Captivate Video Capabilities

Is Captivate able to produce a slide where video is playing in the foreground and slide information is playing behind or to the side of the video?

What we are thinking is to green screen a speaker talking in the video with information coming on and off the screen in the background.

Thank you for your guidance.
