Hi All,

I am currently evaluating captivate 8 as an alternative to camtasia. One effect we like to use on our demo videos is where the whole screen is darkened and there is a spotlight that follows the mouse cursor around. Does anyone know if this is possible in captivate, if so how?

I am also looking for a magnifier effect, that, again follows the mouse and magnifies the surrounding area.

Any help here is appreciated.

Sreekanth, question is about the video demo. Highlight box is static, will not follow the mouse cursor around in the video. You can add such a highlight box but it will remain static.

@future-route Camtasia for pure screencast video is superior to Captivate HD Video demo, and those features prove it. If you only want to make videos, Camtasia is the best tool, but if you want to create interactive eLearning assets, the other features of Captivate cannot be beaten by Camtasia.
