I'd like to talk about Screen Capture
So, I thought a good discussion on the best way to insert screen capture segments in Articulate would be helpful. Having gone from Camtasia to Lectora to Captivate to Articulate, I've seen a lot of variance in what is possible and what is not.
I like that Articulate allows me to bring in AS3 swfs as web objects, because Captivate 5 dropped AS2 support. However, I need to include the control bar, where with AS2 based swfs I could bring them in as flash movies and allow navigation via the Articulate scrubber bar.
I'm looking at ditching Captivate altogether, the only thing we continue to use it for is screen capture segments. I would like to use ScreenR or even Snagit, but Captivate seems easier to meld audio and the video. With ScreenR or Snagit I would have to either a) Record the audio while recording, or b) record later and then use a editing program to marry the two together. Captivate is nice in that I can print out a Word version of the capture (since its slide based) and then record audio with the voice talent from that.
So basically, what I was hoping to get, was the following:
a-What you use for screen capture
b-What you use for audio capture (could be the same as a)
c-What you use to edit the two together (if you use anything)
d-your experiences with this area of coursework in general.
