How to avoid choppy full motion recording in Adobe Captivate Classic


Applies only if you are using Adobe Captivate Classic on Microsoft Windows.

You can create a smoother full motion project, particularly better mouse movement, by disabling hardware acceleration. When hardware acceleration is enabled, it can use a great deal of system resources and result in “choppy” full motion recording. Disabling hardware acceleration results in better full motion recording quality.

To disable hardware acceleration, change this setting in the following location: Start Menu > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > Troubleshoot.

If you disable hardware acceleration, your computer screen will briefly flicker when you begin and end full motion recording. This screen flicker does not harm your computer and does not appear in the final project.
