Importing Power Point and Embedding Video in Captivate Question

I am new to Adobe Captivate, but I have heard the following:
1)     I can import a power point slide directly into Captivate 5.5.  
2)     I can add a action buttion that when click, can play a short video embedded within one of the slides.
My objective is:
1)     When I click that action buttion, I want to play that short video embedded within one of the slides.
2)     Each slide will have an action buttion, and embedded slide of video (different video).
3)     When the video is completed, it returns back to display the original slide
4)     The user can just look at the slide and just move to the next slide without showing the video.
To accomplish this in Captivate 5.5, can I do this ?
1)     I understand that one must place a button on the converted slide and also embed the video to another slide.  This is done by using the tool bar.
Is it possible to do this using programing scripts or anything ???    I would have a many slides to do, and I would like to automate this process.
I would appreciate any suggestions and help.
Thank You,
G

  • Importing Power Point  slides

    I have been trying to resolve this for the past two weeks. I
    have been successfully importing Power Point slides into Captivate
    1 for the last year. Although have not done anything different,
    Captivate is no longer importing the jpg logo (height 0.58" width
    1" displays top right corner) on the PP slide . Everything but the
    logo is displayed in Captivate. The logo is on the Slide Master . I
    replaced the Slide Master, copied the logo onto each individual PP
    slide and recreated the entire power point presentation without any
    success. Can anyone provide a cause and resolution? Thanks.

    I have also had inconsistent results with PowerPoint imports
    in both Captivate 1 and 2. There seem to be less in version 2. The
    problem that I have been experiencing is with fonts. I will have a
    slide that clearly is within the frame in PowerPoint, but when
    imported into Captivate flows off the bottom of the slide. This is
    also incosistent from slide to slide. Here's what I have been
    doing. It's isn't ideal, but hopefully time will get this issued
    ironed out.
    1) I go through my normal import procedures for PowerPoint
    presentations by look closely at the thumbnails provided before the
    final import. If it looks like there is going to be a problem, then
    I bail out at this point.
    2) I go back into PowerPoint, call up my presentation, and
    the do a File > Save As> and then select the file type at the
    bottom as JPEG. It will then ask you if you want to save all. I put
    them in another directory and PowerPoint saves each slide image as
    an individual JPEG image.
    3) I go back to Captivate and import these as images in the
    file creation sequence.
    This usually results in a pretty clean set of slide.
    Hope this helps.

  • Importing Power Point without click boxes

    When I import Power Point, I don't want click boxes to come
    along because I just have to remove them all later. That requires a
    lot of time when your power point is really huge. Is there any way
    to import without the click boxes so the slides will transition
    smoothly without my havign to do anything?
    Thanks!

    Hi janablessed
    When you create a project based on PowerPoint, note the
    screen you see. Look closely near the bottom of the dialog. See
    that drop-down choice labeled "Advance slide"? Click it and change
    it from "On mouse click" to "Automatically".
    Cheers... Rick

  • Creating something different to Power Point using YouTube video

    Hello
    In two weeks, I must show a discussion about Office 2007 As a Development Platform (see http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/products/FX102204261033.aspx). But I dont want to create the classic Power Point presentation, instead something different or more interactive. For example, for the opening of my discussion, I was thinking in create a video intro like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1W85xbHGB0 (yes, I played this game: I want to replace the characters pictures (YuGi, Bakura, Marik and Seto) by Word, Excel, Power Point and Access pictures(icons). A classmate told me I can use AdobeAfter Effect, but I dont know if I want is possible to achieve. Can you help me, please?

    I don't want to rain on your party, but...
    Is that possible to make with After Effects? Yes, sure, no problem!
    Is that possible to make with After Effects if it's your first project and have never used the software, based on some advice given on a web forum? Probably not.

    how can I use microsoft word, power point and those apps in my new iMac ? i bought this iMac yesterday so am new on tho and i would like to know

    If you absolutely must have the Microsoft applications, you can purchase and download them from http://microsoft.com/mac.
    Free software suites LibreOffice and OpenOffice offer similar functionality (word processing and spreadsheets).
    Or you could do worse than look at Apple's Pages, Numbers and Keynote, which should already be installed in your Mac and can export to Microsoft formats if need be.

  • My MacBook Pro with Retina display displays power point and not other windows when connected to a projector

    My MacBook Pro with Retina display displays power point and not other windows when connected to a projector. Can anyone help out please?

    You should also ask this in the MacBook Pro forum. This is the forum for the white and black plastic MacBooks that were discontinued in 2010. You should also post this question there to increase your chances of getting an answer.

  • Can I save a keynote presentation in Power Point and then use the power point on my Macbook?

    My library has a Toshiba TW 650 projector that is used by PCs. I am going to be giving a presentation created on Keynote.
    My DVI-VGA connector did not work for my 2009 Macbook to the projector. Can I sve the Keynote presentation to power point and then
    show the presentation on a PC with the Power Point version?

    Hello redffox,
    You can export the project to a .PPT file as outlined here: Keynote '09: Creating a PowerPoint slideshow http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3698
    To create a PowerPoint slideshow:
    Choose Share > Export, click PPT (PowerPoint) and then click Next.
    Type a name and choose a location for the file, and then click Export.
    Additional Information
    Note: PowerPoint doesn’t support some Keynote features:
    Some bulleted text items may be lost. If you hide the bulleted text on a slide (by deselecting Body in the Slide inspector), it is deleted from the outline when you export.
    PowerPoint doesn’t support alpha-channel graphics, so if you use a photo cutout frame, the image behind it will appear in front. You may also notice slight variations in other graphics.
    Cheers,
    Sterling

    Go to System Preferences - Accessibility - Voiceover - turn off Voiceover. The shortcut is command-F5, so possibly you pressed that accidentally.

  • Importing power point slide into captivate

    Not sure what I am doing wrong. I imported an animation slide
    from power point to captivate last night and it worked great (using
    Captivate2) I tried this morning (using cpativate 3) and the
    animation will not play, it just looks like a picture. Is there
    something different I have to do using Captivate 2 version vs the
    Captivate 3 version? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hi again yankeebrit
    Well, where there's a will, there is often a way...
    You could accomplish it by using what I refer to as 'The
    Camtasia Approach'. Basically, it goes like this. Configure the
    PowerPoint to play in a resizable window. Start the slide show in
    the window, then set Captivate up to record the slideshow as it
    plays. Then, when you know animation is coming, press the F9 key to
    begin a full motion capture. When the animation ends, press F10 to
    stop recording in full motion.
    Using that technique, you are able to get what you want from
    Captivate 2.
    Just a thought... Rick

  • Pause button with imported power point project

    Hi
    I imported a power point project and published it in flash swf, and when I play a slide (in flash) and try to pause the play it does not work and  it continues to '
    play until the end of the slide and then it stops and when I click it continues to the next slide,
    How could I make the play pause the play,  when I click on the pause button (see attached snapshot)
    1- using captivate 5
    2- ppt 2003
    3- output: flash swf
    Appreciate any help

    Hello Lilybiri
    Thank you for your patience with me and I will attach 5 snapshots (for higher resolution, right click on the image and choose open with I.E. or you could zoom in the page)
    You also asked me about the click box; yes I inserted click boxes in only 2 slides (example: slide 3), as a test, in the hope of making the pause button work but it did not do the trick, you also asked about the image in the background, it is an image and not a looping video or animation.
    following are the 5 snapshots (if they do not fit in this message I'll attach them to other following messages):
    Many thanks

  • I cannot import Power Point slides into my presentation...

    Hello, have created brand new project with Captivate 7 and tried to import a Power Point slide I made seconds earlier, and I get an error message.  I tried the same with a new project in Captivate 6 (I have 6 and 7) and I get the same message.  See image.  Power Point was closed when I tried to import it.  Any ideas what could possibly be happening?
    Thanks for any help!!!

    As per the Captivate 7 manual:
    1. In an open project, Select File > Import > PowerPoint Slides.
    2. Navigate to and select the PowerPoint presentation file format that you want to import.
    3. Click Open.
    4. Decide where to place the imported PowerPoint slides in the Adobe Captivate project. Add the slides to the end of the project, or click a slide in the list and add the PowerPoint slides after that slide.
    5. Click OK.
    6. In the Convert PowerPoint Presentations dialog box, do the following:
    a. Select the PowerPoint slides to convert to Adobe Captivate project slides.
    b. Set navigation preferences for the selected slides.
    c. If you want to link to the PowerPoint presentation, select Linked. If you want to embed the PowerPoint presentation, deselect Linked.
    7. Click OK.
    The PowerPoint slides are imported into the Adobe Captivate project and they appear in the designated location. If necessary, you can change the order of the slides.
    Hope this helps!
