This question always comes up on Captivate courses – especially with clients like mining and construction companies who will have widely dispersed trainees with poor quality internet connections. Adobe have a comprehensive article “Tips for Optimizing File Size in Captivate 5“, which covers:
- Full Motion recording preference
- Audio adjustments
- Final adjustments before publishing
- PowerPoint import
- Other best practices
What I learned from this article
I learned to “turn off the Include Adobe Connect Metadata option in the project preferences” – to save space if you are not using the resulting output with Adobe Connect. I did not know that!
