I recorded some footage in Second Life and would like to play it back considerably faster than it really occurred. Any idea how I can do that?

Hi wunderful61,

Try increasing the number of frames per second.

You can do this by -

1. Selecting Edit > Preferences .

2. In the Preferences dialog, select 'Publish Settings' category.

3. By default, 'Frames per second' will be set to 30. You can increase it to play your project

relatively faster.

Thanks,

Sagarika

When I try to change the FPS, Captivate doesn't allow it. It goe right back to

30 no matter what I do to change it. Any idea why this might not work?

Hi Shelley,

Will it be possible for you to share your project for further investigation? If yes, please upload it on acrobat.com and send me the download link at sagarika@adobe.com

Also, you can try changing the FPS in a newly created blank project to find out whether it is a project specific issue or not.

Thanks,

Sagarika

I rerecorded everything at the max frames I could put, 50, and the speed of the playback did not change.

Here's an example - I recorded everything in short bursts in case I had to redo since Captivate's video editing isn't too great as far as I can tell.

Hi there

I believe what is meant is to record at one frame rate. Perhaps the default 30 Frames Per Second. Then edit the settings for the project to increase the frame rate. Then publish.

Unless I'm mistaken, this should have the net effect of speeding up playback, as you are then playing back at a faster rate than you recorded.

Cheers... Rick

It's that third sentence that baffles me as to how to do it..

Then edit the settings for the project to increase the frame rate.

I've tried to change it and I can't get it to change once I record it. Right now, they are all recorded at both 30 and 50.

Hi Shelley,

Here is the procedure of what has to be done -

1. Record your project with the default FPS of 30.

2. After the slides are created in Cp, go to Edit > Preferences.

3. In Preferences dialog, go to 'Project > Publish Settings' category and type 50 in the 'FPS' text box.

4. Click 'Ok' on Preferences dialog.

5. A dialog pops up - "Changing project frame rate will cause improper playback ... ". Click 'Yes' on this dialog. (Image of the dialog is attached)

This will change the FPS for the project to 50 and plays the recording at a faster rate.

Instead of rerecording now, you can copy all the slides from your project (the one which is recorded at 30 FPS) and paste it in a new blank project. Then, continue from step 2.

If this is not working, can we do a connect session to investigate this issue? Please mail me at sagarika@adobe.com

Thanks,

Sagarika

Hi,

As it is a captured project, every slide is approximately of 3secs. Reduce every slide's time to around 1secs or even lesser. Now publish and play the output. The movie shoud playback much faster.

I tried it with the project you provided at acrobat.com. The output looks faster without any degrdation in quality.

regards,

mukul

I know I probably did this goofy, so how should your suggestion be accomplished?
