Have you switched from Captivate to Storyline?
Oct 10, 2012
I'd like to hear from some people who have switched from Captivate to Storyline. We are considering making this move for our team of 6 curriculum developers. We are considering making the change from Captivate 5 because Storyline seems to be easier to learn, and faster to develop with, is publishable to HTML5, and mobile formats, offers easy-to-edit software simulation/screen recording, has a great support community, and has a responsive development team.
We hesitate to upgrade to Captivate 6 because when we upgraded in the past we lost some features, or had to create workarounds to features that no longer worked. Adobe doesn't make Captivate a priority, and we're frustrated with how that effects us.
Currently, when we need to rapidly create software simulations, we use Camtasia, but we really hope that Storyline will be able to replace that tool for us as well.
So, if you've made the switch, please post about your experience, what you can now do better with Storyline, what capabilities you miss from Captivate, etc.
