Not so easy to answer. About the file size: will you deploy for mobile devices? IThat is a big difference compared with deployment on deskotp/laptop screens.

I have been exploring 360 slides (which can be in a normal Captivate project) and VR projects. You can find some recommendations in these blog posts:

You cannot have a 360 image in a fluid box. Youcould publish as Scalable HTML but the hotspots can become too small to tap on them on mobile.

Be careful when starting with responsive projects, reflect before starting them: do you really need the project to be responsive or would a rescalable HTML project do the trick. Too many newbies start immediately with a responsive project, without first mastering the basics of Captivate. Responsiveness adda a suppplementary level of complexity which is too mucn underestimated.

I am just following up on your original question.

I am having issues with my 95 MB project on mobile devices for my VR project.

What did you experience? Any fixes?

File size and resolution restrictions should not be that complicate of a question to answer... I to am working in Captivate 2019 on VR projects and I am not a newbie to VR or Captivate but VR inside of Captivate has been perplexing to say the least. There is little to no information out there on how to use it or create content.

I am deploying for mobile and desktop for my newest project and so far video inside of the VR workspace has been not very easy to work with or figure out why some videos work and other do not (just black screen for duration of timeline?) Is there a maximum resolution the video size can be (under 4K, 1920, etc...?) Thanks and any help with this would be huge for those working in VR with video.

Thank you Lilybiri for your advice. I am indeed a beginner! And I agree, I need to start from the basics. I need an online course I think - any recommendations?

Since I am a trainer, and not really like canned trainings (never took them myself, nor did I ever buy a book, because find most of the useless), I will not answer your question.

Too much depends on your personality and needs, on your past experiences with software applications and with 'learning/training' which is often ignored.  Many have asked that I write out my view on software training, and especially about Captivate training.

If you are in the Eastern United States in March or can be, there is the Adobe eLearning Conference where you can get lots of knowledge from the various speakers. Also on the day before the conference, Adobe offers the Captivate Specialist program. Upon successfully completing this material and writing the assessment you will gain the Adobe Captivate Specialist designation. Not counting your travel and accommodation these two days will only cost you $500 USD for the first day. The conference itself is free.
