Greetings.

I have created a captivate deck.  It has one slide with about 5 minutes of audio, and animations built to go along with the audio.  I also did closed captions.

When I export as scorm… everything works.

The problem is, that I want to export as video so that I can insert it as an interactive video within another captivate deck.

The video plays, but there are no video controls, the box shows for the closed captions but there isn’t any text, and there is no sound.

Please can someone help me?

I’m using windows 10 and have an Adobe Captivate 2019 subscription

Could you consider using another tool to create the “video” and using that? Perhaps Cavalry, Camtasia, After Effects… It sounds like you want to use that to create some type of engaging activity/interaction.

As I’m fairly new to Captivate I wonder if you could just add the page into the new course and add the interactive elements to that page?

Welcome to the community.

Nice that you try to help but another tool to create the videos will not be a solution in this typical use case. The problem is with the output format ‘mp4’ which is typical to lead to a passive video. You cannot have real interactivity in a passive video format. For interactivity, whether it is created in After Effects, in Animate or another tool (Camtasia is for video as well) or in Captivate is not important, you need to export to HTML5 and upload to a webserver or a LMS.

New to Captivate? Video is by definition passive. Closed Captioning is part of the skin of a to be published project since it needs to be synchronized. When you publish to video you lose that skin, so you’ll lose the CC as well.

You need to to the CC once the video is inserted as a slide video in the other cptx-project, because at that moment you are preparing for publish to HTML5, not to video.

Why you use this workflow is a real mystery to me. Why not have everything in one cptx project: animations, audio, static and interactive objects?
