Blurry content, shapes and images

I'm working with multiple png files to build up a scene; however, try as I might, Captivate isn't giving me the image sharpness required.

I'm importing the png files at precisely the correct pixel dimensions, no scaling up or down required once in Captivate.

 

I'm also working with shapes, but the shapes I create using the Captivate tools are not the clean, crisp, super sharp shapes created in Illustrator or PowerPoint.

 

I'm new to Captivate (using trial version), so I think I'm missing something basic here, but what?

 

Set up:

Captivate 2019 (trial)

iMac Retina 4K running Ventura 13.2.1

Not really missing something. Although shapes originally are based on vector images, they were introduced before Captivate accepted SVGs. If you want something really crisp, please use SVGs which you can export from Illustrator. It is a pity that shapes were not updated when accepting SVGs were introduced. Have a look at the example in this blog post, which was published as Scalable HTML:
