Ken Burns Effect on video in Captivate

Adobe Captivate

Is it possible to create a Ken Burns type effect on a video in Captivate. I am trying to create a software simulation where I can zoom into a section of the screen, pan to another section of the screen, zoom in a little further before finally zooming out. I can’t find a way of doing this as every time you add a pan & zoom effect in Captivate, it resets the screen back to full size before enacting the effect.

Using Assessments Effectively in eLearning

JCA Solutions

An assessment is a device we use to gather information about our eLearning effectiveness. Yet it could be an activity of some sort like performing in a software simulation. They vary based on complexity as well as the investment required to carry them off effectively.

eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: How Much Time Does It Take to Create eLearning?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

  If you’re creating a software simulation, you’ll need a step-by-step recording script.   Once you're written the software simulation script, you'll likely need to run through it multiple times to ensure it's accurate.   Recording the Software Simulation or Video Demo. If you use Camtasia, I suggest creating software demonstrations instead of simulations.

Best of Both Worlds: Integrating Adobe Captivate and Articulate Presenter

eLearning Blender

While Captivate is great for software simulations, I think Articulate is better for soft skills projects and tying the whole thing together. For example, I'm currently working on a project where branching scenarios lead into software simulations. I wanted to use Articulate presenter for the branching scenario but I also wanted to use Adobe Captivate for the software simulations.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE & GOANIMATE: Sharing Voices Is Quick and Easy
