It’s my first time to use Captivate 3 and I am surprised that it doesn’t have the capability to sliced through the timeline of a Full Motion Recording (FMR) and delete or split some portions. It allows shortening the display of the video but you cannot delete even just the first few seconds of the video. Other similar products like Camtasia Studio and even Windows Movie Maker provide this capability. I just thought that maybe because the output of Captivate 3 is an SWF file and not an AVI. So maybe I’ll just find a way to convert an SWF file to an AVI so that I can use the Windows Movie Maker to delete some portions of the video. Not so good! There must be a way since Captivate 3 is a video capturing software. Doesn’t it make sense that a video capturing tool can be a video editing tool as well?
Luckily, I came across with this article and I found out that there is an editor for the Captivate 3 Full Motion Recording. Read on to this article. It includes the link to download the editor tool as well as step-by-step instructions on how to edit an FMR SWF.
I’m still wondering why an editing tool from Adobe has to be downloaded separately rather than including it in the Captivate 3 installer.
