Flash to HTML5 – Swiffy From Google

Upside Learning

This has come just in time for mLearning implementers; there is a new tool out in Google Labs called Swiffy that let’s one convert flash animation (swf files) to a device independent HTML5. We’ve been experiementing with Swiffy for a few hours now and it seems to do quite a decent job of converting SWF files. File sizes also seem to be very small; perhaps because of the plain text nature of HTML5.

Balancing image quality and SWF output size in CP 5 – 1

Adobe Captivate

In this two part blog series we look at information that you can use in Adobe Captivate 5 to parallel decide the quality of an image and the SWF file size and bring forth the differences between the publishing of images in CP 4 and CP 5. Size of SWF output files is an important consideration for many content developers as it takes longer time for end users to download larger files.

Balancing image quality and SWF output size in CP 5 – 2

Adobe Captivate

In the previous post we looked at the different options that CP5 provides at the slide level to control the image quality and size. The following example demonstrates the difference between CP 4 and CP 5 image settings and rendering and size: This is how the slide looks in the edit area. When the project is published in CP4 with the JPEG option the SWF file size was 2314KB. This how the slide looked in the swf output file. Cp 4 SWF size.

Adobe Captivate 5.5: Lowering the Size of Published SWFs

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Fortunately, adding interactivity to a lesson does not negatively impact the size of the published SWF. Rather, imported assets such as audio, video and images are the main culprits behind SWF bloat. There are some things that you can do while working in Captivate that may lower the size of the published SWF. However, if you can trim the lesson down to 2-3 minutes of playtime, you'll save on SWF file size. by Kevin Siegel.

Adobe Captivate 7: Publishing Video Demos

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

I'd be surprised if any Captivate developers reading this article haven't published at least once via File > Publish.   Here's what the standard Publish dialog box looks like:     When publishing a cptx project, you can elect to publish as SWF, HTML, PDF, or all of the above. You can also select Media from the options at the left and publish as a video file. As with a cptx project, you still choose File > Publish. by Kevin Siegel.

Keeping these in a separate folder and launched as individual SWFs will also help keep the file size and load time down. In this case I will take my Flash course and import the SWF to the first page of Articulate Presenter. A single button in my menu, called Knowledge Check, will move the user from the Presenter page containing the course SWF to the second page where the assessment begins.

Compressing Media in Your E-Learning Authoring Tools

E-learning Uncovered

In my last blog post , I shared the basic reasoning behind optimizing your e-learning media files and how to reduce file size using external tools. You can choose from a Standard setting (an optimized compression level designed to keep file size low and still maintain quality) or Custom if you’d like to manually set the quality settings for the different media types. The Optimized for Web Delivery settings use optimized compression levels to keep file size low.

Three Time-Saving Rapid E-Learning Tips

In last week’s template, I purposely only included the final template and not the original source file. Create Smaller File Sizes. The PowerPoint flash tools like Articulate Presenter are going to convert your PowerPoint content on each slide to a Flash movie file (.swf). The size of the.swf can vary based on the content on the slide. This can have an impact on how well your content runs over a network since larger files can take longer to load.

Gif resize on import

Adobe Captivate

With the end of life of swf and more browsers locking out swf files, I have been forced to find a solution a little quicker than anticipated after our IT department made a change earlier than expected. The gif size is 696kb and I also created an mp4 video version (3.42 megs) in size. What is puzzling to me is when I import the gif into the Captivate 2019 project it converts it to a 23meg file size.

First Reflections on Version 11.5.0.

Adobe Captivate

File size of SVG’s tend to be smaller, compared with bitmap images, and moreover they are excellent for responsive project due to their vector nature. Size of the SVG: about 75Kb. The other Preview methods are all still based on a temporary SWF output (except Play Slide, which is NOT a preview method). Intro. Usually I will not talk about a new version immediately after its release.

If you do not have the source files for the course, or the course was built with obsolete software, recording the content as a video is a decent option. Here’s how: Open a blank PowerPoint file. In the Save Media As dialog box, specify a file name and folder location, then click Save.
