Hi there,

I try to make a demo video of the program auto desk Maya and some important input is with F for focus or 1, 2 and 3 to smooth mesh. unfortunately captivate does not capture these key strokes. It only captures "shift", "alt", "Ctrl" and the Function keys. I would also need to capture Left and right mouse click and "hold&drag" or make the window of the mouse "hold&drag" function visible in the recording.

how can i set the settings that it will capture alphanumeric input as well as mouse input  ?

help is greatly appreciated

cheers

Phil

I think you must mean software simulation. Video demo captures non interactive screen recordings. There are some key combinations that cannot be recorded because they are reserved for other functions. If you have a multiple monitor configuration try putting the application you wish to record on your primary monitor. I've run into situations where having an application on my second monitor gives me missed key strokes and missed mouse clicks.

I'm at a loss on this one. You may need to get Adobe in on this problem and have them troubleshoot it for you.
