Adobe Captivate lets you add animation to Adobe Captivate SWF files. This introduces an element of motion that is effective and eye-catching for users. Add existing animation files to a slide or use the animated text feature in Adobe Captivate.

When you add an animation file to your project, it automatically gets added to the library to the Media folder.

  • You can add SWF or GIF animation files directly to a slide. Slides containing an animation file can be edited just like other slides containing an object.

Märkus.

Adobe Captivate contains a gallery that has buttons, sounds, and animations (in SWF format) for you to use in your projects. By default, the gallery is stored in the following location when you install Adobe Captivate: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Captivate <version_number>\Gallery (on Windows) or /Applications/Adobe Captivate <version_number>/Gallery (on Mac OS

Märkus.

If you want to add a Flash animation file (FLA), you must first convert it to a SWF file. To do this conversion, you must have the latest Flash version installed on your computer.

  • To add animated text, select from a number of interesting effects included with Adobe Captivate. Experiment with different fonts, colors, and effects to achieve the right look. Slides containing animated text, with their combination of text, movement, and sound (if you choose to add audio) make great opening slides for projects.
Märkus.

Device fonts are not displayed in Adobe Captivate. If you import an animation file containing text created with device fonts, the animation appears in Adobe Captivate, but the text does not. For animations that will be imported into Adobe Captivate, try to use embedded fonts for text.
