Using the Device Capture feature, you can record video demos (*.cpvc projects) of content and apps that are on your iOS device. Just plug in the device, and start recording all the actions that you perform on the device.
This feature supports only those iOS devices that are connected to the Mac with a lightning connecter (that is IOS devices with IOS 8 and above and with MAC OSX version 10 and above).
Decide on the orientation of the device before you start recording. You cannot change device orientation while recording as the resolution changes abruptly and Captivate stops the recording.
Click File > Record a new > Device Demo. A screen appears on the monitor displaying the connected device. If there is more than one connected device, select the required device from the drop-down list on the left of the Device Audio button.
If the device is not connected properly, Captivate issues a warning beep and displays the following error message:
Select the audio recording options by clicking the Device Audio dropdown and press to start recording.
You can pause the recording at any point by clicking again.
The timer starts counting the time in seconds at the top of the screen indicating the length of the device capture video.
If you have audio playing on your device, Captivate plays the audio through the Mac, capturing the audio content from the device in your recording.
To show the actual device user experience, gesture support is added.
You can now add and edit gestures such as swipes, taps, pinches, and zooms. When a video demo is open for editing in Captivate, all the available gestures appear in the Property Inspector.
