Join Anastasia McCune for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring video demos, part of Captivate Projects: Software Simulations.
…The type of recording we did previously in the course…works really well for simulating how to use the software.…However, there is another type of recording available in Captivate…called a video demo that may also serve you as well.…With video demos you can capture screen action just like we did before.…However, the output once you publish, is an MP4 video file.…Now, if you need something that's just straight video, that works really well.…The down side is that you lose any interactivity.…Since, of course, all you can do with a video is just watch it.…
I'm going to create a video demo quickly so you can see how it works.…I've got our Excel sheet open from before, and now, from…the start page of Captivate, I'm going to choose Video Demo.…So, we get that same dialog box we…saw before when we were getting ready to record.…I'm just going to make some adjustments.…I'm going to make the Excel sheet large.…I'm going to make sure that we're recording…application and I'm going to choose Application Region.…Notice that there's no choices here for demo, assessment, training, or custom.…
