Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using built-in actors, part of Learning Captivate 6.
Here's a new feature in Captivate 6 you might like: the ability to import…characters, or what we would call actors.…These are various personalities in different poses that we can add to our slides…to create some visual interest.…We're going to do that with our Volunteer Orientation project here on slide 9. …Now, if you need to get caught up with me, go to the Chapter3 folder, and open up…Volunteer_orientation_SAMOCA15.…When we go up to the Insert menu, you'll notice something down near …the bottom: Characters.…
A lot of people will see this and think keyboard characters, special…characters, like symbols, and so on, but really if we click this, you'll see it's real characters.…There are different categories to choose from, Business being the default. Now, if…you haven't installed these yet, you'll be prompted to do so.…So you'll want to pause this movie, go through the installation process to get…these assets added. Depending on your installation options when you install…Captivate 6, you may need to do this, or they may already be there like mine.…
The course shows how to make a presentation from scratch or with built-in themes, import Photoshop images and PowerPoint slides, and add interest with animation, widgets, and video. It also demonstrates how to prepare for and record a software simulation, synchronize video, add audio, and build quizzes into your project.
