Hi, Our Tech Support staff has made several animations in Adobe Captivate as the main tool to teach our users certain functionalities. Captivate generates output in .SWF + .HTML or .EXE (FlashPlayer wrapped with the .SWF file) format) but not .AVI or other common formats.
I will make a prodecural document in FM to give the user the work context and convert it to PDF. I cannot add the animations to the FM file because File > Import > Object does not accept those formats. And the hypertext command that can launch an applicatio in FrameMaker does not work once PDFed. I know I can simply add buttons to the FM document and convert to PDF, and then link the button areas to the .SWF, .HTML, or > EXE files. But each time I redo the PDF I will lose the links made to the external files. Our goal is to send our document out to specific users and have them test it - there will be several iterations of this tool and many new PDF documents generated. i will go lonk crazy! Do you have any suggestions? is there a better way to do this? Many thanks for your ideas!
