Recording and Importing
Start Page: Access recently used files, online
help, and educational tutorials from the
intuitive Start page.
Recording Modes: In demo mode, Captivate
automatically adds mouse movement, text
captions, and highlight boxes. Simulation
mode creates a project with scored
interactions and instructional feedback.
Project Templates: Save development time
by specifying major project characteristics,
including background, caption styles,
playback controls, and other preferences.
Audio at Capture Time: Record audio
narration and capture screen motion
Import Rich Media: Import SWF, FLA, AVI
video, and GIF animations. Imported FLA
files edited on the fly in Flash are updated
automatically in Captivate. Leverage
existing Microsoft® PowerPoint® slides
or entire PowerPoint presentations as
high-quality images.
Editing and Timing
Storyboard View: Use Storyboard view
to reorder slides quickly by dragging and
dropping, or double-click any slide to edit it.
Delete slides or record and insert additional
slides anywhere, any time.
Visual Timeline: Drag and drop to control
timing of objects, captions, and audio on the
simple visual Timeline.
Audio Editing: Edit mistakes and pauses, or
add an external audio track to a presentation
with the easy-to-use audio editor. Attach
sound effects or narration to individual objects.
Customizable Captions: Customize the
appearance, size, orientation, position, and
display speed of captions, including font,
size, color, and text formatting. Select caption
styles from the extensive gallery or create
and import your own.
Project Resizing: Resize a project even after
recording is complete. Maintain the current
height/width ratio, rescale, or crop as needed.
Publishing and Delivering
Multiple Output Formats: Author a
simulation once and generate multiple file
formats—including SWF, EXE, Word, Pocket
PC, and more—for easy distribution in the
format of your choice.
Macromedia Flash™ MX 2004 Export:
Export projects directly to Flash MX 2004
for further development. The export option
is integrated into Captivate and includes
playback controls.
Macromedia Breeze™ Integration: Add
interactive simulations to presentations
or live meetings. Publish directly to a
Breeze server to track and manage courses,
learners, and scoring data.
Microsoft® Word Output: Use Microsoft
Word output for storyboarding or generating
printable handouts.
Accessible Content: Generate
508-compliant content.
Password Protection: Maintain security
and control access to content.
Unicode Support: Use any font and
encoding supported by the Windows
operating system, including double-byte
character sets.
E-Learning and Interactivity
Integrating with Other e-learning
Applications: Captivate supports AICC
and Captivate content is SCORM 1.2 and
SCORM 2004 certified. Captivate
automatically generates the LMS manifest
file, making it easy to deploy simulations
through any learning management system.
Leverage additional tools by integrating
simulations with Macromedia Breeze,
Macromedia Authorware®, and the
Questionmark® Perception™ assessment tool.
Quizzing: Choose from customizable quiz
templates such as multiple choice, fill in the
blank, matching, and more. Timed quizzes
limit how much time students can spend
answering a question and quiz results can
be distributed by e-mail.
Branching: Use branching to customize
content in response to viewers’ actions. Send
viewers to a specific slide in the current
simulation or to other simulations.
Scoring: Capture scoring data from all
interactive elements, including click boxes,
text entry boxes, buttons, and quizzes.
Buttons, Click Boxes, and Text Entry
Boxes: Insert buttons, click boxes, text entry
boxes, or keyboard shortcuts to enhance the
realism of a simulation. Specify the required
action from the viewer such as a single mouse
click or specific keystroke.
Feedback: Assign captions to click boxes,
buttons, and text entry boxes to provide
feedback in response to viewers’ actions.
Rollover Images and Captions: Use effects
to offer additional information about a
particular region of the slide or provide hints
and tips during a lesson.
Create interactive simulations and software demonstrations
Macromedia® Captivate
 is the easiest way to create professional-quality,
interactive simulations and software demonstrations in Macromedia
 format. Without any programming or multimedia skills,
automatically record on-screen actions, including editable mouse
movements, text captions, and scored click boxes. Add e-learning
interactions like data entry fields and customizable quizzes. Small file
size and high resolution make Captivate content ideal for rapid
application training, user support tutorials, and online product
Key Features
Anybody can do it
Captivate enables anyone to create
interactive simulations and software
demonstrations without any programming
knowledge or multimedia skills. Get up
