question whether to use animate or captivate for this

Hi.
Let's say I want to create a quick tutorial on how to register in an app/website. It should consist of a couple of screens with a mouse cursor moving, as well as a small popup window with additional information here and there.

This seems to be a pretty good job for Adobe Animate, right? I just paste the screenshots there, use an animation tween for the cursor and give it some easing so that it's smoother, show every now and then the popup with the extra information, and that's it.

Is there a good reason to use Captivate for this task instead? I don't really want to record the registration process directly as a video, as I seem to have more control if I compose this manually.

Thank you for any advice

I would use Captivate of course. You can start with a software simulation, eventually insert some video demo slides, and as many popups as you want. Personally I find it much easier than to do this with Animate.  Moreover you can add use a software simulation in training or assessment mode, and score the workflows. Reporting to a LMS is also a breeze, not so with animate. Why not add quickly a narration (for the instructions), with Closed Captioning as well? And a Table of Content without having to create everything from scratch?
