B-roll in captivate? (or whatever this very cool effect is)
I am an agile coach and an executive leadership coach. I typically work with organizations who want to transform their culture, often involving many people, like my current client of 300,000 people. I'm hoping to learn to do eLearning well enough to scale myself.

Hi, I’m trying to figure out how to do a nice effect that I saw in a Udemy video on cinematography. It’s where there’s a vid of a person (talking head) on a greenscreen-related background, then it cuts to 4 separate silent 3 second videos, but with the talking head narrator still narrating (you can hear the narrator, but you no longer see them, because instead, you are seeing the silent videos while the narrator continues to narrate, then it all switches back to the original setup, of both seeing and hearing the narrator / talking head. Here is a link to the course on Udemy, “How to improve your video quality” (I think its free):
My question is, how would I do this in captivate? distribute the talking had video across slides and somehow put the silent videos in the middle slides? Other? I don’t know if this is b-roll or something else, but it looks great.
Thanks in advance for suggestions.
In the attached screenshot  of the video, the vid playing is just the images, and the narrator/talking head is narrating.

Thank you both for your suggestions. I will explore these. I’m also thinking that it might be better to use a video editing tool; I have camtasia, and successfully was able to put 4 videos into one project, then switch back and forth between them using animations.

Hi Angie, You could also use PiP video in video demo creation mode – create a new video demo where you record the webcam speaker, then use that mode to switch back and forth between webcam and screen capture / animation etc. You could also do something like this with PVX.  To learn more – check here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIIBtlXEN7U

I believe you just cut the main video into several segments and add the other videos in between. So the main video won’t be one, but several videos. Record the VO as a different track, so you don’t have to worry about slicing that up. Maybe there is an easier way to do it though…
