Optimal Adobe Captivate 7 Size

Feb 20, 2017

E-Learning Heroes Friends:

Long time, I'm doing software simulations for DoD now. Quick question, what is the optimal resolution for an Adobe Captivate software simulations? 

So, far I'm looking at 995 x 627.

Hi Philip

Thanks for posting your question here in the E-Learning Heroes forum! There's no hard and fast answer to your question. It depends on many variables: How big are the slides in your project? Do you want the recording to fill the entire slide? Will it be for desktop only, or for mobile as well? Does the software application in question look best at a certain size, or aspect ratio? Do you need to scale up or scale down your recording? These are all things to consider when choosing the resolution for your recordings. 

Here's a few articles I've written about creating software sims:

Hope these are helpful tips... best of luck! :)
