Is there any way to use a .webp file in Captivate? I'd like to use one as a background video.

Files with the extension webp are images. The webp format is an open source format from Google. The video version is called webm. Adobe Captivate doesn't import either formats. You would need to convert them to one of the many formats that Captivate does import.  If it is a webp file you have you can open it in Microsoft Paint and then save a version of the file as a .png format. If it is webm (video) you can import that into VLC and then convert it to MP4.

ridiculous that Adobe Captivate does not support these popular formats in 2022.  So what if you want to have slide video with transparency?

Put in a feature request to Adobe to have support for this in the next release. Adobe does listen to feedback but comments on the forum is not the place to provide this feedback. Here is where you need to post those suggestions: https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html (select Captivate from the dropdown).
